The University of Wisconsin tried to move their Jan. 15th game against Nebraska out of the same time slot as the Packers/Giants game at Lambeau Field, but were unsuccessful.
The Badgers and Cornhuskers are scheduled to play at 5pm while the Packers and Giants kickoff at 3:30 from Lambeau Field.
Associate Athletic Director Justin Doherty said they’ve made a very legitimate effort to move the game off of the window of the Packers game, but changing the time would have affected the travel, timing and schedules of up to half the schools in the conference, either on the men’s or women’s side. It would have required the approval of all those schools.
Doherty said the Big Ten tried to help facilitate a move, but logistically it was just not feasible.
