    Badgers Practice In "Heat Wave"

    Wisconsin Athletic Communications Excerpts:

    Breakdown: The nice thing about playing on Saturday is that the team can lay out its schedule the same as a normal game week. With that in mind the Badgers ran through a normal Tuesday practice today, full pads, 22-periods in length. The only abnormal part was that the temps were in the low 70s, a stark contrast to the mid 30s of the last outdoor practice in Madison (prior to the Cal Poly game) and even better than the 60s we practiced in yesterday.

    Play of the day (offense): The young wide receivers seem to be carrying over their good play from the latter half of the regular season. Both Nick Toon and Isaac Anderson made several nice grabs during practice. One of Anderson’s grabs is pictured below. The two of them combined for 16 catches and 253 yards over the last two games of the regular season.

    Play of the day (defense): Defensive linemen usually don’t get to touch the ball much but today was different. The linemen knocked down several passes, with Mike Newkirk, Matt Shaughnessy and Jeff Stehle all breaking up passes.
    Return man: Tight end Lance Kendricks has practiced the last two days, his first practices since breaking his leg in the Michigan State game. He participated in all the drills today, catching a couple passes when the first-team offense went against the scout team defense.
