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.

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.
