Wisconsin-Notre Dame game at Lambeau Field still set to take place

The anticipated October 3 game between Wisconsin and Notre Dame is still set to take place at Lambeau Field, according to the CEO of the Green Bay Packers.

In May, a report said the scheduled game might not take place at Lambeau Field due to uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus.

However, Packers CEO Mark Murphy said in a Q&A session on Saturday that they are still planning to host the game at Lambeau.

“I’m glad you brought this issue up, Matt. There was a report last week that erroneously stated that the Wisconsin-Notre Dame game this year would be played in South Bend rather than Lambeau Field. We have talked to representatives from both Notre Dame and Wisconsin, and they’ve confirmed that they are still planning to play the game at Lambeau Field. I do think that college football will be played this year. Like the NFL, the colleges have three months before the football season will start, and we will both be able to learn from the other sports over the next few months to see what works and doesn’t work in terms of holding games. The colleges also have the issue of whether their campuses will be open to students, which may impact the decision of whether to play games. Obviously, the key factor here will be the status of the virus and how our efforts at slowing the spread have worked.”

The schools have not played since 1964, which makes this such an exciting game for fans of both programs. The Fighting Irish have an 8-6-2 advantage in the all-time series. They are set to play the second of the two-game series at Soldier Field in Chicago in 2021.
