The Badgers are scheduled to host LSU at Lambeau Field in their 2016 season opener. It will be the first time the iconic NFL venue has hosted a college football game.

Murphy said he welcomes the idea of Lambeau Field hosting college games “on a fairly regular basis,” per

“It’ll be a tremendous economic impact,” Murphy said. “It’ll be felt throughout a good portion of the state. You’re going to have people traveling from Madison. It’ll be the Saturday night before Labor Day.

“You’re going to have people traveling from Louisiana and Madison, probably staying in hotels all the way down to Milwaukee and other places. The weather will be good then, so it should be a great event for fans across the state.”

The game is a second in a two-game series between the Badgers and Tigers. The first game was held to open the 2014 season at NRG Stadium in Houston, a 28-24 LSU victory.

According to Murphy, Wisconsin wanted the game at Lambeau Field because athletic director Barry Alvarez told him there would have been no way to attract a team of LSU’s stature to play at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

“I think it’s a win-win,” Murphy said. “(Wisconsin) fans are going to be able to—a lot of them probably have never seen a football game at Lambeau Field—so they’re going to be able to see a game here.

“And LSU and their fans have a great reputation. They kind of travel the way Packers fans do, and so LSU, their fans are so excited about this.”
