Wisconsin is ready to launch the Luke Fickell era.

The Badgers announced Friday that their annual spring game will be held on April 22.

While “The Launch” may not be considered Fickell’s Wisconsin debut, it’s certainly the first opportunity for fans to get a preview of what the Fickell era will look like in Madison. Fickell was on the sidelines for Wisconsin’s win over Oklahoma State in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl, the sendoff for former interim head coach Jim Leonhard. Now, he’s the head coach with a full staff and plenty of new faces.

For the 2023 recruiting class, Fickell’s staff signed 15 out of high school while landing 13 players from the transfer portal.
