Start times announced for pair of Badgers football games


We know Wisconsin football will play a trio of road games at night already this season and as we get closer to the start of the season more game times and television information is likely to be released. That was the case today as Wisconsin announced the start times for it's season opener against UMass and the next week against Tennessee Tech. 

According to the release the Badgers will take on UMass for the first time in school history at 11am on August 31st and the game will be televised by BTN. Wisconsin will get the BTN and 11am start time treatment the next week against Tennessee Tech as well. 

Neither of these should be a surprise considering the fact that neither of these games are exactly high profile. We now know the schedule for the Badgers first three games with Wisconsin playing Arizona State on Sept. 14th at 9:30pm CT on either ESPN or ESPN2. 

Additionally the Badgers will play Ohio State in week five at 7pm CT on ABC and following a bye week will take on Northwestern at home on Oct. 12th at 2:30pm CT (TV TBA) and at Illinois on Oct. 19th at 7pm CT on BTN.
