Eighteen years after winning the Heisman Trophy, Wisconsin Badgers great Ron Dayne was back at Camp Randall Stadium for what he called one of the biggest days of his life. Instead of a football, he carried a diploma.

Dayne was among the graduates Saturday, completing a journey that began nearly two decades ago when he arrived on campus from New Jersey. The running back  subsequently broke the NCAA Division I career rushing record.

Meanwhile, it was also graduation day for two young Packers, and they were wearing their new colors as they crossed the stage.

At Louisville, first-round draft pick Jaire Alexander was wearing his new Packers threads under his graduation robe.

Did he, uh, autograph is own jersey there?

Meanwhile, second-year running back Aaron Jones graduated from the University of Texas-El Paso, and he was also wearing his green and gold.
