UW Madison 'working on the volume' of speakers at Camp Randall Stadium

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The University of Wisconsin is "working on the volume" of the speakers at Camp Randall Stadium after fans complained about the "elevated levels" during the Badgers season opener against the Buffalo Bulls. This, according to Todd Milewski of the Wisconsin State Journal. 

According to Milewski's report, following Wisconsin's 38-17 victory over Buffalo, a flood of calls came in, calling for change to the game presentation. 

UW Director of Athletic Chris McIntosh on his monthly radio show said officials "turned the volume down to where it had been in previous seasons for the second half the game," which was intended to "help fill down times in the action." 

Milewski's report says, UW partnered with Van Wagner -- a game production company -- to change the game experience this year at Camp Randall. 

Attendance has been declining at Camp Randall and the Badgers want to attract more fans to watch the games in person instead of on television, the report says.
