It’s been a while since the Wisconsin Badgers have played a game under the lights at Camp Randall Stadium. Five years as a matter of fact.
That has changed this season with the Badgers set to play both Ohio State and Nebraska in prime time. The Badgers will host the Buckeyes on October 15 (7 p.m. CT) and the Huskers will make the trip to Madison and will kick off with the Badgers on October 29 (6 p.m. CT). Both games will air on an ESPN network yet to be determined.
The ESPN announcement of its prime time lineup brings conference night games back to Camp Randall for the first time since 2011. That’s when Wisconsin rolled to a 48-17 win over Nebraska in the Huskers first-ever Big Ten game.
The Badgers also knocked off top-ranked Ohio State 31-18 under the lights in 2010.
The Badgers are 12-4 all-time in night games at Camp Randall, including a mark of 6-3 against Big Ten opponents.
