Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010 was Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt’s 16th birthday.
For his birthday, his mom took him and some of his friends to Camp Randall Stadium to watch his brother J.J. and the Badgers play Ohio State.
He relives that and talks about his brother on “The Journey” on Big Ten Network tonight at 9 p.m., but Wisconsin on BTN tweeted a clip of the interview this morning.

In the clip, T.J. says he’s amazed by what his brother can do and thankful that J.J. will give him advice after games. But he also talks about that game in 2010 when the then-No. 18 Badgers beat the then-No. 1 Buckeyes 31-18 in Madison.
“Just seeing my brother just completely taking control of the game and the momentum that the crowd gave the Badgers that night was incredible,” T.J. said. “Storming the field obviously after was a moment I’ll never forget.”
In the game, J.J. had four total tackles, three of those coming for a loss with two sacks.
In his own game against the Buckeyes last Saturday, T.J. and the Badgers lost a close one 30-23, but he had five total tackles in the game, including half of one for a loss.
