Wisconsin Football Spring Game: Your Essential Guide

All eyes will be on redshirt sophomore QB Jon Budmayr in 2011 as he attempts to take over for Scott Tolzien. Tolzien wasn’t the flashiest of quarterbacks, but he was one of the most efficient signal-callers in the country last season.

Considered by many to have an even stronger arm, Budmayr has quite the task ahead of him when replacing Tolzien who led last year’s squad to a Rose Bowl and rarely made mistakes on the football field.

Budmayr gets his first chance on Saturday when the first-team offense (Cardinal) takes on the first-team defense (White) in the Wisconsin Badgers Annual Spring Football Game that kicks off at 1:00 PM.

Badgers Three-Headed Monster of Ball, Clay and White

Four Reasons Why The Badgers Didn’t Run Up the Score

Forget about the Hoosiers though, the big story is how #7 Wisconsin tied the mark for the most points in a Big Ten Conference game ever. The 83 points is also the most points scored in school history since 1915.

Badgers’ Coach Bret Bielema Finally Notches The Big One

The fourth time is a charm as the Wisconsin Badgers and Head Coach Bret Bielema stunned the nation by knocking off the #1 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes by the score of 31-18 in front of an electric atmosphere at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, WI.

The Badgers were well prepared for the Buckeyes and dominated from the ensuing kick-off which saw David Gilreath run 97 yards for a touchdown and quick 7-0 lead.

Many critics believed Bielema was unable to take the Badgers to the next level because of his track-record in big games versus Big Ten opponents (5-8 vs. ranked Big Ten Teams and 0-3 vs. Ohio State). They can now look elsewhere because Bielema coached his Badgers to one of the biggest wins in school history.
