Ejections down at final home game of 2012 Badger football season

The number of University of Wisconsin-Madison students ejected at the final home game of the 2012 Badger football season decreased compared to the last game in Camp Randall stadium, with ejections due to seating issues in the student section below the season home game average.

University police arrested 19 students during the game against Ohio State and ejected 43, compared to 77 ejected during the Michigan State game Oct. 27, according to data from the UW Police Department.

Throughout the season, at home games police cited and arrested the most students Sept. 15 in the game against Utah, which was the only 7 p.m. game in Camp Randall this year.

On average, UWPD ejected 55 students, issued citations to 16 students and arrested 17 students per home game. The majority of ejections were related to either intoxication or seating issues.

Nineteen people were ejected from Saturday’s game due to seating issues. An average of 46 people were ejected for seating issues per home game throughout the season, but the UWPD reported only two at the first game of the season Sept. 1.

Ejections due to seating issues in the student section spiked in late September and early October for games against UTEP and Illinois after university police received complaints that students could not sit in their designated sections and began more strictly enforcing the seating rules. At the Illinois game, 100 people were ejected for violating the seating policy, including non-students.
