Wisconsin, LSU to play at Lambeau Field in '16

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The home of the Green Bay Packers will host its first college football game in 33 years and it should be a good one: LSU against Wisconsin at Lambeau Field in 2016.

The Packers said Friday the teams will play on Sept. 3, 2016. It's an early-season game with little risk of the "frozen tundra" Lambeau is famous for after the so-called "Ice Bowl" of 1967, when the Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys to win a spot in the second Super Bowl.

Three previous college games have been played at Lambeau Field, but none of them was a Division I showdown featuring the likes of the Big Ten's Badgers and the SEC's Tigers. St. Norbert, six miles from Lambeau Field, has won three times at Lambeau, twice beating Fordham (1982, 1983) and Mankato State in 1960.

"We're honored to be able to host two storied college football programs at Lambeau Field," Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy said. "It will be an exciting weekend for football fans at our historic stadium."

Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez agreed.

"It is a tremendous opportunity to showcase our program, a great experience for our players to play in one of the most revered stadiums in the country and a terrific chance for our fans to see us play a quality opponent in the state of Wisconsin," he said.
