The Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan Wolverines football Twitter accounts both noted on Monday afternoon that in two weeks the teams would be meeting under the lights at The Big House on ABC. It’s starting to get dark around here at, like, 4 o’clock so a 6:30 p.m. CT kickoff is basically midnight to me.

The Badgers are still awaiting word on if this week’s game, against Purdue on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. CST, will be played at all due to COVID-19 concerns surrounding the Badgers program. Athletic director Barry Alvarez said on ESPN’s College GameDay this past Saturday that a decision would be made on Tuesday about the game.
In his media availability on Monday morning, Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm said he was preparing as if everything was a go.
Brohm expects to have answer on Wisconsin game tomorrow. Preparing full-speed ahead.— Tom Dienhart (@TomDienhart1) November 2, 2020
The Wolverines and Badgers have played each of the past four years with each team winning their two home games, including Wisconsin’s 35-14 victory last season at Camp Randall Stadium during a Stripe Out.
Michigan is 1-1 this season, having demolished the Gophers in their opening game and then losing, as three touchdown favorites, at home to rival Michigan State. The Badgers, as you well know, are 1-0 and most recently canceled their game against Nebraska because they were terrified of the mighty Huskers.
