Tim Condon, then a sophomore at UW-Madison, is escorted from Camp Randall after running onto the field to celebrate Wisconsin running back Ron Dayne's record-setting performance against Iowa on Nov. 13, 1999.

While most Wisconsin fans might not know the name Tim Condon, they have probably seen him in action on the field at Camp Randall.

Condon came out of nowhere and broke for the endzone in a now-infamous run on Nov. 13, 1999, during a football game against Iowa.

Only the Wisconsin sophomore wasn't suited up for the Badgers. 

In fact, he wasn't suited up at all.

Condon celebrated Wisconsin running back Ron Dayne's record-setting performance by running out of the stands and onto the field while wearing only a red bandana, white socks, tennis shoes and some Wisconsin-themed body paint. 

After Dayne set the record, Condon made his move while the Badgers huddled up for the next play. He ran toward the south end zone, waving his hands and smiling.

Condon even took the time to strike a "Heisman Trophy" pose before finishing his run and getting arrested by police officers.

Condon, then an employee at Wisconsin Public Television, was later charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, unlawful entry to the playing field and disorderly conduct. 

Condon had all charges dropped after completing 60 hours community service work at Wisconsin Public Television.
