Lambeau Field to host Wisconsin Badgers and LSU Tigers to Open 2016 Season

New, comments

The much-talked about deal is reportedly being finalized, and the Badgers will indeed play at Lambeau in the near future.

After much discussion earlier this year, it appears that it is finally happening. The Wisconsin Badgers and LSU Tigers have reportedly agreed to play a season-opening game at Lambeau Field in 2016. Logistics of the deal are still being worked out, but it is part of a pseudo-home-and-home series in which both teams will play at NFL stadiums near their home fields.

Check out the coverage from SBNation's Wisconsin blog, Bucky's 5th Quarter, and the LSU blog, And the Valley Shook.

The Badger hockey team has a history of playing in Green Bay, as they played Ohio State at Lambeau in 2006 and they regularly play non-conference games at the Resch Center. The Packers used to play the occasional preseason game at Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium. However, to our knowledge this will be the first college football game played in Lambeau.

As a proud Wisconsin alumnus, this boils down to one sentence for me: SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
