College football roundup: 2016 LSU-Wisconsin game set for Lambeau
Updated On: Oct 11 2013 06:12:15 PM CDT
The Green Bay Packers on Friday confirmed that LSU will play Wisconsin at Lambeau Field in Green Bay in both teams' 2016 college football season opener.
The University of Wisconsin Board of Trustees reviewed and accepted the terms of the contract on Thursday. The University of Wisconsin is expected to be paid $3 million for holding the game at Lambeau, which is the Packers' home field.
The game will be played Sept. 3, 2016, and represents the fourth college football game to be played at Lambeau Field. But it will be the first game at Lambeau featuring two FBS teams.
St. Norbert College twice hosted Fordham University at Lambeau Field in a Vince Lombardi Memorial Game, in 1982 and 1983. St. Norbert beat Mankato State College on Oct. 29, 1960.
LSU and Wisconsin will also play each other in their 2014 season openers, with that game to be played at Houston's Reliant Stadium.
---A lingering turf toe problem will keep Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez sidelined for a third straight game.
Tommy Armstrong will again start at quarterback for Saturday's game against Purdue.
---Clemson wide receiver Germone Hopper, the team's second-leading receiver, and backup Tigers' defensive back Ronald Geohaghan were suspended for Saturday's game against Boston College for a violation of unspecified team rules.
It's unclear whether the suspensions are for just one game and will apply to the Oct. 19 game against Florida State as well.
Hopper, a redshirt freshman, has 15 receptions for 117 yards and two touchdowns this season.
