5. The team’s nickname, “Badgers,” was borrowed from the state of Wisconsin. The territory was dubbed the “Badger State,” not because of animals in the region, but rather an association with lead miners in 1820. Prospectors came to the state looking for minerals. Without shelter in the winter, the miners had to “live like badgers” in tunnels burrowed into hillsides. The badger mascot was adopted by the University of Wisconsin in 1889. What is the difference in years between the naming of the Wisconsin Badgers and the lead miners coming to Wisconsin?
