Former Badgers player returns home to play at Lambeau
GREEN BAY - The Packers welcomed Oakland to the cheese-state for an early non-division clash.

For one Raider this was a homecoming six months in the making.

Raiders fullback Alec Ingold is originally from Green Bay and played at Bay Point high, just fifteen minutes from Lambeau Field.

After the game, Packers fullback Danny Vitale had a sincere moment as the two swapped jerseys.

"I love seeing those fullbacks. We're a fraternity of guys so there's only a couple of us left so anytime you can swap with one of those guys is pretty cool," said Vitale.

This wasn't Ingold's first game at Lambeau Field.

"I saw a couple of plays of him, man I don't know, a couple of weeks ago or whatever it was and just really liked what I saw," said Vitale. "He's a young guy, he's from Wisconsin, from Green Bay so, you know, special day for him."

The fullback led the Badgers to a season-opening victory in Green Bay against the LSU Tigers back in 2016.
