It was a game day at Camp Randall like no other before it. There were touchdowns and a resounding victory, but no crowd, and the only cheers were piped in. The Badgers defeated Illinois by 45-7 in the pandemic-delayed and season-opening night game, which allowed essential staff only and no fans to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
