Nebraska will open up Big 10 conference play this upcoming season under the lights against Wisconsin the Madison.Com newspaper reports. First game in the conference and going up against a good opponent like Wisconsin, I guess you couldn’t expect anything different as the Huskers off the odds stacked against them this first year. I say bring it all on!

University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said Thursday that the Badgers will host the Cornhuskers in a night game Oct. 1 to be televised by ESPN. The kickoff time hasn’t been set, but Alvarez said it would likely be 7 p.m. That’s pretty much all we know at this time as nothing official has came out from the Big 10 or the UNL.

Husker fans should know that Camp Randall does get crazy during games and especially big night games. Tough crowd that is tough against the opposing team but also the opposing fans. I have already heard from some Wisconsin fans that have mentioned how crazy it will get especially with a 7 p.m. kickoff. Let’s just hope the Huskers come out and strike early to take the Badger crowd out of it.

One thing is for certain, I’m going to try to make the road trip out to Madison even though it’s a long 13-14 hour drive for me. I want to be there to see the Badgers go down on national tv and see the Huskers pick up their first Big 10 victory! Anyone else planning on going?
