McCarthy welcomes Badgers, LSU at Lambeau Field

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Aug 8, 2013

GREEN BAY - There are reports that the Wisconsin Badgers and LSU Tigers will play at the home of the Green Bay Packers in 2016.

The Journal Sentinel says that Virginia Tech agreed to move a matchup with the Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium from the 2016 campaign to 2017.

The UW-LSU game will happen on Sept. 3, 2016.

Packers Coach Mike McCarthy gave positive thoughts Thursday about a Wisconsin-LSU tussle on the sometimes "frozen tundra," though with a tongue-in-cheek warning.

"It would be great to have the Badgers play at Lambeau Field.  Just don't screw up our grass," joked McCarthy.

LSU and Wisconsin will play next season at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas.
