ESPN has confirmed what Kirk Herbstreit said a few months ago.
Wednesday, ESPN announced that College GameDay will open the season at Lambeau Field in Green Bay for Wisconsin’s clash with LSU. The game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be shown on ABC.

This is the first time GameDay will travel to Lambeau, and it’s the show’s 74th broadcast site. There were plenty of other options, too:
Oklahoma vs. Houston
North Carolina vs. Georgia
Alabama vs. USC
Clemson at Auburn
LSU is currently a 9.5-point favorite over Wisconsin in this game.
