Spring Football "Game" Format

I know that the NCAA Basketball Tournament is the hot issue at the moment, but I have a football question I would like to pose to the journalists, mods and members at large in the hope of satisfying a long-lingering element of Spring Football related curiosity.

I was privileged to attend The Spring Football “Game” three years ago, and have been struck with wonderment ever since as to why Coach Bielema chooses not to follow an actual game progression format. I observed a series of structured scrimmage plays, with the place kicking game accounting for a seemingly inordinately large measure of the scoring totals, and I’m at a loss to understand why this is so. Could anyone in the know impart the explanatory reasoning to me as to why our “Spring Game” is not conducted in a bona fide “game” format?

You have my sincere thanks in advance.
