The Wisconsin Badgers will open the season with one of the premier nonconference games in the nation. They will meet the Tigers of LSU on a neutral field in Houston.

The Tigers have lost a slew of talent during the last two seasons, but they continue to reload thanks to Les Miles' recruiting acumen. However, it's still hard to replace that amount of talent. It may be the right time for Wisconsin to upend the SEC and throw its name into the national championship hunt.

In the weaker Big Ten division they have a great chance to run the table. They just have to get past LSU.

This game will have huge implications for both teams.
