Wisconsin Football Twitter account lays claim to Upper Peninsula after beating three Michigan teams
MADISON, Wis. — It’s official: The Upper Peninsula belongs to Wisconsin now.
Well, not really. Following the Wisconsin Badgers’ shutout against Michigan State on Saturday (and wins against University of Michigan and Central Michigan University), Wisconsin Football jokingly tweeted to the Upper Peninsula account asking it to hand over the deed to the land.
Wisconsin 61, Central Michigan 0
Wisconsin 35, Michigan 14
Wisconsin 38, Michigan State 0
Send us the deed, @UpperPeninsula

Surprisingly, Upper Peninsula relented quite easily. It went on to announce name changes to two universities, that marijuana would be illegal again and that “cheese pasties are now a thing.”

The “change” comes after the Upper Peninsula Twitter page aired grievances about being labeled as part of Wisconsin in a Mountain Dew ad campaign earlier this year.
