MADISON -

 The Wisconsin Badger football team had its first practices of the 2014 season Monday at Camp Randall Stadium.

Head Coach Gary Andersen has takes a little different approach for the first few practices, splitting the team into a morning group and an afternoon group.

For example, Joel Stave was the quarterback in the morning practice while Tanner McEvoy had a chance to run the offense in the afternoon practice.

"There's no number one's and twos in the first four days of camp," Andersen said.

"There's an "A" practice and a "B" practice and everybody will compete. They'll get reps, they'll put it out there and it will allow the youth to be able to mix in a very competitive situation with the veterans on the team."

The Badgers open their regular season Saturday, August 30th against LSU at NRG Stadium in Houston at 8 pm.
