It’s never too early to check into the college football season and the Wisconsin Badgers football schedule. The Badgers have an intriguing schedule this season. These include a rivalry game being played earlier and a non-conference match-up with a blue-blood program. Not to mention a game at historic Lambeau Field to top if off. Below are three games that intrigue me for the 2020 Badgers football team this year.
Minnesota Golden Gophers (October 10th in Madison, WI)
Wisconsin went into Minneapolis last year and embarrassed the Golden Gophers 38-17. There’s no doubt P.J. Fleck will have his troop motivated. Minnesota will look to snag Paul Bunyan’s Ax out of Madison. While losing some key contributors on both sides of the ball, including wide receiver Tyler Johnson, Minnesota still presents a problem such as quarterback Tanner Morgan and wide receiver Rashod Bateman returning. The duo of Morgan and Bateman will cause headaches for opposing teams all season.
Michigan Wolverines (September 26th in Ann Arbor, MI)
The Badgers will have a chance early in the season for a huge win. Michigan Stadium is a hostile environment for college football that seats over 100,000 fans. Michigan also presents a roster with a ton of NFL talent as well. The Badgers got the best of the Wolverines last year in Madison 35-14. This is be a great change to avenge a loss in Ann Arbor too. The last time Wisconsin went into Ann Arbor in 2018, Wisconsin suffered a 38-13 loss to the hands of the Wolverines. This would be a great opportunity early in the season and pick up a huge win on the road.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (October 3rd in Green Bay, WI)
The LSU-Wisconin game at Lambeau Field intrigues me most. I attended the Wisconsin-LSU game in 2016 at Lambeau Field. There was a energy in the stadium I never felt before. It was one of the best athletic events I have ever attended. This year will be no different. The Irish have a team that seems to contend for a New Years Six bowl game every year. The Irish fans don’t have far to travel from South Bend, Indiana. It’s a game that’s been buzzing since it’s announcement. There’s no doubt it’ll continue for the coming months. This will be a game all college football fans will want to tune into.
