It’s always exciting when two Power Conference teams match up on the football field. It’s especially compelling when it happens the first week of the college football season. Fans will get a treat on Saturday, Sept. 3 when SEC power LSU and Big 10 contender Wisconsin get the 2016 season underway. To make the affair even more interesting, the Tigers and Badgers will play at historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, home of the NFL’s Green Bay Packers.

Under head coach Les Miles, the LSU Tigers Football team has been a consistent threat not only in the SEC but in the national championship race as well. Last season the Tigers went 9-3 and placed third in the SEC West. Miles has guided the Tigers to three SEC division titles and the 2007 national championship. His teams have finished ranked in the top 25 all but two years since he took over the program in 2005.
The Wisconsin Badgers Football team enters the game with a year under the belt of second-year head coach Paul Chryst. The former Badger assistant coach went 10-3 last season, placing second in the Western Division of the Big 10. Wisconsin defeated USC in the Holiday Bowl last season in a 23-21 thriller. This season the Badgers must replace quarterback Joel Stave but return running back Dare Ogunbowale, who rushed for more than 800 yards a year ago. The Badgers have consistently produced All-American-caliber running backs and a strong offensive line.
The Tigers and Badgers have only played one another three times, most recently in 2014 where LSU won 28-24 in the season opener. LSU has won all three meetings, also prevailing in 1971 and 1972. Wisconsin has lost its last two season-opening games, while LSU hasn’t lost its opening game since 2002.
