You've heard rumors. Reports. Retracted reports. Wisconsin was about to step up and play another traditional SEC power in September. The Badgers and LSU, like two characters on a television show, were engaged in some will they, won't they tension. There were reports of just going to Houston, there were reports of just going to play at Lambeau Field.
Tonight, according to Scott Rabalis of the Baton Rouge Advocate, it looks like the answer is both.
Joe Alleva says #LSU to play #Wisconsin at Lambeau Field to open 2016 season. 2014 game in Houston.— Scott Rabalais (@RabalaisAdv) August 8, 2013
It's the first time Alleva has been able to give a definitive date (2016) on the game at Lambeau Field. Contract to be inked next week.#LSU— Scott Rabalais (@RabalaisAdv) August 8, 2013
Of course, the contract isn't official just yet. And there's always the possibility of something going caddywhompus and the deal not being finalized. But it looks like Barry Alvarez finally has that non-conference game he's been eyeing for all these months.
