MADISON (WKOW) -

An announced crowd of 8,095 came to Camp Randall Stadium on Friday night to cheer on the Badgers as they wrapped up spring football practice with the annual spring game. The defense dominated the day as they beat the offense 20-17 in a unique scoring format.

The team practiced for the first half of the evening before returning to the field for a scrimmage. Many of the veteran starters did not participate in the scrimmage.

Griffin Grady led the defensive charge with nine tackles. Caeser Williams added an interception. Garret Rand, Isaiahh Loudermilk and David Pfaff recorded sacks.

Offensively, Jack Coan threw for 121 yards and one touchdown to go with one interception. The freshman is locked in a battle with fellow freshman Kare Lyles to be the top backup. Lyles completed 2-of-6 passes for 16 yards.

Bradrick Shaw led the rushing attack with 34 yards on four carries. Kyle Penniston caught three passes for 33 yards. On special teams, Rafael Gaglianone connected on 2-of-3 field goal attempts.
