Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Wisconsin and LSU will play at Green Bay's Lambeau Field early in the 2016 season, the Packers and Wisconsin Athletic Department announced Friday.

The game will take place on Sept. 3, 2016.

"I'm very excited about this game and I hope our fans are, too," Wisconsin director of athletics Barry Alvarez said. "We have a great working relationship with the Packers and Mark Murphy and I want to thank them for all their help in getting this game scheduled. It is a tremendous opportunity to showcase our program, a great experience for our players to play in one of the most revered stadiums in the country and a terrific chance for our fans to see us play a quality opponent in the state of Wisconsin."

The contest will mark the fourth college football game to be played at Lambeau Field. St. Norbert College twice hosted Fordham University at Lambeau Field in a Vince Lombardi Memorial Game, winning both contests. The Green Knights defeated the Rams 14-10 on Nov. 20, 1982, and 18-9 on Nov. 19, 1983. St. Norbert also hosted Mankato State College on Oct. 29, 1960, defeating the Indians, 29-14.
