MADISON, Wis. (AP) — University police say 36 people were arrested at Wisconsin’s home game against Nebraska.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports UW police handed out nearly double the number of citations and ejected twice as many fans Saturday night than they did during Wisconsin’s season opener a month ago in a Thursday night game against Nevada-Las Vegas. The difference was many in the Saturday crowd had the opportunity to drink all day.

Police issued 40 citations Saturday, including 30 to UW students. The 36 arrests included 26 students. Some of those arrested received multiple citations. Seventy-seven people were ejected from the game, 43 of them students.

University police say most of the citations and ejections were for underage drinking, possession of alcohol and being intoxicated.
