Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) - The Badgers will meet LSU in prime time for the 2014 football season opener. The school announced it will face the Tigers at 8 p.m. CT at NRG Stadium in Houston on Aug. 30 in the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff. The game will be televised on ESPN.

The non-conference showdown should be one of the marquee matchups of the opening weekend. LSU ended the 2013 season with a 10-3 record. Wisconsin was 9-4.

The Badgers will play neutral-site season-openers the next three seasons. In 2015, Wisconsin will face Alabama at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The following year, the Badgers and Tigers will meet again at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
