While no fans will be allowed in Camp Randall Stadium this year, it should still be fun for the players to open up the season under the lights. The Badgers will, no doubt, be looking for revenge against Illinois after the Illini beat the Badgers on a last second field goal last season.
The Big Ten released their entire Week 1 schedule, which features Nebraska at Ohio State for Big Noon Saturday on FOX and Michigan at Minnesota in primetime on ABC Saturday night.

No other Wisconsin game times have been announced yet, but the Gophers have apparently been relegated to high school status as they have three Friday night games coming up this season. The Game, featuring Michigan and Ohio State, assumes it’s traditional noon (ET) kickoff on the last Saturday of the B1G regular season.
