Wisconsin football opens up its season this Friday night when they host Illinois.
We’ve waited 296 days, but Wisconsin football is finally here! The Badgers will take on Illinois tonight under the lights of Camp Randall. Here are a few odds and ends information before the Badgers kick off tonight.
The Badgers and Fighting Illini will kick off tonight at 7:00 PM central time. If you want some pregame content, I would go over and check out LockedOnLive on YouTube. They are having a live show, starting at 6:30 central time to get you ready to roll before kickoff. LockedOnBadgers’ host Asher Low will be a part of it!
Where can I watch it?
You can watch the game tonight on the Big Ten Network (BTN). If you don’t have the Big Ten Network in your channel lineup, you can also stream it on the Fox Sports app. The Big Ten has partnered with Fox Sports, so you can watch the Badgers on the app whenever they are on the Big Ten Network!
What will the weather be like?
According to The Weather Channel, it will be 37 degrees at kickoff with a 5% chance of precipitation. There will also be a 10 mph wind, which could be something to watch as the game goes on. It could be a cool and possibly damp game tonight after all the rain the area has gotten in the past couple of days.
