UW-Madison police eject 131 fans from game

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- University of Wisconsin police removed 131 fans from this weekend's football game between the Badgers and Texas-El Paso.

Sgt. Brent Gruber says most of the ejections -- 89 -- were related to fans sitting in the student section without student tickets.

Gruber says in a statement that police acted after receiving complaints during the first two home games of the year from students who were unable to sit because non-students were crowding their section.

In all, the Wisconsin State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/OTivhq ), 22 people were cited for a variety of offenses, including 17 for underage drinking.
