MADISON, Wis. -

Badger fans looking forward to some football action and excited for Gary Andersen's debut will have plenty of opportunities to see the Wisconsin football team in the month of April.

In addition to the annual Spring Game on April 20 in Camp Randall Stadium, Andersen announced Wednesday that two Badgers practices will be open to the public, on April 6 and April 12.

Fans will be able to enter Camp Randall Stadium through Gate 1 beginning at 10:30 a.m. on April 6. The Badgers will practice from 10:45 a.m. until approximately 12:45 p.m. The practice time for April 12 will be determined that week in accordance with the weather forecast. The earliest practice would start would be 4:30 p.m. If the weather allows, the start time will be moved to early evening.

Both open practices are free for the public and weather permitting. If weather precludes the Badgers from practicing in Camp Randall Stadium, fan access to that practice will be cancelled, according to a news release.

One lucky fan will win a pair of season tickets for the 2013 season at each open practice. Andersen will also briefly address the fans at the conclusion of each practice.

The Badgers will hold their annual Spring Game on Saturday, April 20, starting at 4 p.m. CT. Tickets to the game are $5 with all proceeds going to the UW School of Pharmacy. The game will also be televised live by BTN.

Prior to the Spring Game, UW will hold its annual Badger Kids' Fair. The event runs from 2-4 p.m. and will be held in the McClain Center, adjacent to the stadium.

The free event includes interactive games, displays, autographs, photos with Bucky and a number of athletic skills stations. Many UW sports will be represented at the fair, and children will have an opportunity to meet current student-athletes.
