Weather looking perfect for Saturday

Practice7.jpgUW's annual Cardinal and White Spring Football will be held on Saturday and as of right now, it looks like the weather will cooperate. The latest weather.com long-range forecast puts the high at 64 degrees, almost 10 degrees above normal for mid-April. It also calls for sun (not to be confused with my favorite: "plentiful sunshine") and a zero percent chance of precipitation.

The game will kick off at 2 p.m. and admission is free to the public. Approximately 23,500 fans turned out last year as the Cardinal team, comprised of the No. 1 offense and defense, defeated the White team 56-20. The day was similar to this year's forecast, 61 degrees but cloudy at kickoff.

Fans are also invited to the Badger Kids Fair prior to the Spring Game. The Kids Fair will run from noon-2 p.m. in the McClain Center, adjacent to Camp Randall Stadium. Kids will enjoy interactive displays while meeting UW student-athletes and coaches from many of UW's varsity sports teams. That event is also free to the public.

Members of the football team will be on hand for the first hour of the event before leaving to begin their preparations for the Spring Game). Plus, from 1-2 p.m., former Badger football players will be on hand to sign autographs for fans.

Did I mention everything was free?
