MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Wisconsin football team will open its season at night. E-S-P-N says it will televise the Badgers' game against L-S-U starting at 8 p-m on August 30th in Houston.
It's expected to be an attractive match-up for a national audience. L-S-U went 10-and-3 last fall, and was 14th in both major polls. Wisconsin went 9-and-4, with a Number-22 final ranking by the A-P.
The Badgers have not played a regular season game against a Southeastern Conference school since 1972 -- when L-S-U beat the Badgers 27-7 in Baton Rouge.
