The No. 16 Wisconsin Badgers sure better be used to playing under the lights this season, as it was announced on Monday morning that their match-up against the Michigan Wolverines next Saturday, Oct. 13, will have a 6:30 p.m. CT start time.
That will be three consecutive games (at Iowa, Nebraska, at Michigan) and four of its six contests so far this 2018 season that Wisconsin (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) has played at nighttime.
Heading into this week’s contest against the Huskers (6:30 p.m. CT, BTN), the Badgers are 2-0 in primetime affairs this year. Head coach Paul Chryst and his team defeated the Hawkeyes in a 28-17 win at Iowa City on Sept. 22 and comfortably won a 34-3 contest against Western Kentucky in the season-opener on Aug. 31.
Michigan (4-1, 2-0) faces Maryland this weekend in its homecoming game.
