Wisconsin football logged one of its greatest wins 25 years ago today, a 13-10 victory over archrival Michigan that established the Badgers as the Big Ten's newest powerhouse.

It's also the anniversary of what we've come to remember as the Camp Randall Stampede.

69 students were hurt as fans rushed the field following the game, trapping many at the bottom of the stands at the north end of the stadium. Seven were critically hurt.

Former TODAY’S TMJ4 sports reporter Jessie Garcia spoke to some of the people involved in that stampede back in 1993.

She joined Wisconsin’s Morning News on 620 WTMJ to reflect. You can listen to her interview above.
