The Wisconsin Badgers were unable to defeat the LSU Tigers today in the RequiaQuest Bowl, falling by a final score of 35-31. However, the offense looked great and the aerial attack was eye-opening for the fans.
Apparently, the fans were not the only one who noticed the high-powered passing game that the Badgers put on display. It was also noticed from a player currently in the NCAA transfer portal.
That player is the son of Green Bay Packers legend Donald Driver. Cristian Driver did not hesitate to speak out on Twitter about watching the Badgers and seeing how well the passing game was working. That has led many to think that Driver and the Badgers could be a potential fit for each other.
Cristian Driver Seems Somewhat Interested In The Wisconsin Badgers
Driver spoke out on Twitter about what he saw from the Badgers’ offense.
Okay… Wisconsin is feeling different today, throwing that ball.

Following the tweet, a few fans started shooting their shot on the Badgers’ behalf. It’s clear that Wisconsin fans would welcome Driver back home to the state.
Come on home 😏

Driver, who has entered the NCAA transfer portal after not having much of a role with the Penn State Nittany Lions, is a player that the Wisconsin Badgers have had interest in before. They were unable to land him then, but perhaps they will get another opportunity.
During the 2023 season at Penn State, Driver was only able to catch one pass for eight yards.
There will likely be plenty of other teams interested in adding Driver to their offense. However, the Wisconsin connection is legitimate and has to be of interest to Driver himself.
Only time will tell what the offseason has in store for the Wisconsin Badgers, but adding Driver would be a fan favorite kind of move. We’ll have to wait and see if there is interest from the two parties.
