college football season at Lambeau Field against LSU.

It’ll mark the first time that the Badger football team will play a game at historic Lambeau Field.  The Wisconsin men’s hockey team played there in 2006 against Ohio State.

For the matchup to happen, the two teams needed some cooperation from Virginia Tech.  The Hokies agreed to move their 2016 home game against the Badgers to a later year, which opened the door for the game to take place.

Wisconsin and LSU will also open the 2014 college football season at Houston on Aug. 30, 2014.

Wisconsin is scheduled to open the 2015 season against Alabama on Sept. 5 in Arlington, Texas.
