Light practice opens heavy week for Badgers


There was little time to rest following Saturday's scrimmage, as the Badgers returned to practice Monday to open a week that will see them drill four times in six days.

Despite the quick turnaround, the team was greeted with a brief session inside the McClain Center -- due to windy conditions outside -- and were on the field for just over an hour.

The practice, conducted in half-pack (helmets and shoulder pads only) focused primarily on special teams work, but the Badgers also spent time making corrections from Saturday's scrimmage as the offensive units went head-to-head with the defensive units.

The team returns to full pads for its ninth practice of the spring on Tuesday before closing out the week with a practices on Thursday and Saturday
