MADISON (WKOW) -

Badgers athletes from all sports traded in their uniforms for formal wear at the 2016 Buckinghams. The annual awards show highlights the overall talents of the student-athletes. The biggest winners of the night were basketball player Zak Showalter and track and field star Kelsey Card. They took home the 'Student-Athlete of the Year' awards.

"There's a lot of really talented people in this group that's here," said Showalter. "So, anyone who wins an award, should feel honored and humbled."

The ceremony is highlighted by various on-stage performances at the Overture Center. This year's event had musical performances from Vitto Brown, Dare Ogunbowale and Corey Clement, among others. Clement, a star running back, admitted this was more nerve-wracking than preparing for a game.

"I don't have the helmet on. So, if I mess up, they know what I look like."
