The Wisconsin vs. No. 5 LSU matchup is one of the most anticipated games during a busy first full weekend of the college football season.
If you’re a Wisconsin football fan planning on being in Green Bay this weekend, here are places you may want to check out, as shared by Wisconsin’s athletic website. Times are all for the Central Time Zone.
- Bucky’s Block Party: 5:30-11 p.m. Friday at Titletown Brewing Company (230 N. Broadway in Green Bay). It’s free to get in, with food and drinks available to buy (food tents and ceremonial beer tapping will be present). There will be a pep rally with the Wisconsin marching band, fireworks scheduled at 9 p.m. and a live outdoor concert with Vic Ferrari.
- ESPN’s CollegeGameDay: 8-11 a.m. Saturday at 1901 S. Oneida Street (Ashwaubenon, Wis. — Lambeau Field). Another free event as ESPN broadcasts its on-location show for the first college football Saturday of the season. It’s the first time GameDay has been at Lambeau Field, but it’s the second year in a row Wisconsin has played in the first GameDay location of the year: Wisconsin vs. Alabama in Arlington, Texas.
