In 2014, the LSU Tigers will open up their football season against the Wisconsin Badgers at Reliant stadium in Houston. Two years later, the two teams will open the college football year at legendary Lambeau field in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The matchup has been in the words for several months, but becomes official today. Lambeau field, home of the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, should make for a superb college football environment, something the Packers are banking on.

Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy released the following statement on

“We’re honored to be able to host two storied college football programs at Lambeau Field. It will be an exciting weekend for football fans at our historic stadium. The Green Bay community will serve as an excellent host and we all look forward to seeing fans from both teams that weekend.

“I’d especially like to thank Barry Alvarez (Wisconsin AD) and Joe Alleva (LSU AD). It’s been a pleasure to reconnect with them to put this game together.”

The Milwaukee Journal sentinel is reporting that the Packers will pay Wisconsin $3 million for playing in the game.
