Wisconsin football team holds spring scrimmage open to public


The Wisconsin football team was outside again Saturday and drilled in front of about 850 fans that turned out for the first of two open practice sessions this spring. It was a big day for the offense, which got touchdowns from WR Jared Abbrederis, WR Kenzel Doe, WR Jordan Fredrick and RB James White during the live scrimmage portion of practice.
There were plenty of highlights from the Badgers first and second team offense, Joel Stave is currently listed as the number two quarterback behind Curt Phillips, but Stave looked sharp connecting with Jared Abbrederis for a couple of touchdowns. Defensively, the Badgers will no doubt be led by linebacker Chris Borland in 2013, and he made his presence felt.
After the scrimmage, Coach Andersen praised his kids for their energy level, his team looking forward to showing Badger Nation what to expect come September, "This is important, it matters to the kids, it really gets them more invested to the public and to Badger Nation.
It matters to them, it matters to us, people take a Saturday morning to come on out want to support the kids and see the new offense and new defense. It's great for us to be part of it really. So, good solid week (of practice) proud of the young men."
