The weather didn’t necessarily pan out for the 2012 Wisconsin Badgers Annual Spring Game, but that didn’t stop a few thousand people from coming out to Camp Randall to watch some of the team’s young stars.
Third-string running back Melvin Gordon stole the show with 30 rushing attempts for an impressive 159 yards. The future star Gordan helped lead the Cardinal squad to a 21-10 victory over the White squad.
- Arguably the two most recently talked about Badgers in the off-season weren’t even a part of the Spring Game. Last year’s Heisman Finalist Montee Ball didn’t take part as the Spring game has always been a showcase for underclassman and transfer quarterback Danny O’Brien won’t make it to campus until the Fall.
- There were two touchdowns in the game. One from the redshirt freshman quarterback Joel Stave (14/25, 135 YDS, 1 TD and 1 INT) to redshirt sophomore wide-out Chase Hammond (4 REC, 48 YDS and 1 TD) for seven yards and the other coming on a Melvin Gordon two yard run.
