Over the weekend, word leaked out of the Wisconsin camp that the Badgers were interested in locking up a neutral site game against LSU. The neutral site? The Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field… which isn’t exactly neutral.
Earlier this week, LSU AD Joe Alleva admitted that his school is in discussions with Badger brass about the matchup:
“We’re still in the preliminary stages of talking to them. It’s too early. There’s too many things to consider. The biggest thing to consider is the value of playing a game that far away versus the value of playing a game in Tiger Stadium. That’s what it comes down to.
From a recruiting standpoint it’s a great game to tell kids you are going to play in Lambeau Field. But Wisconsin is a long way away…
The novelty of playing at Lambeau is great, but there’s a whole lot of things to weigh. The financial things. We’ll see.”
Alleva said the schools are actually talking about playing two games against one another — one at Lambeau and one in Houston.
