We've been breaking down UW's first three non-conference games over the last three weeks and now we know when all three games will start.
UW announced today that both the Fresno State and Wofford games will start at 11 a.m. CT. The Fresno State game will be broadcast on either ESPN or ESPN2, while the Big Ten Network will televise the Wofford game.
UW had previously announced Wisconsin's season opener against Northern Illinois on Sept. 5 would kick off at 6 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.
