LSU vs. Wisconsin at Green Bay and Houston, instead of at LSU and Wisconsin?

Ronald Martinez

DID YOU KNOW: LSU and Wisconsin already have football stadiums.

UPDATE: LSU will reportedly play Wisconsin at Reliant in 2014, but it's not official.

The setup: the LSU Tigers and Wisconsin Badgers are talking home-and-home, except not home. Wisconsin wants LSU at Lambeau Field, while LSU says a trip north could mean a game in Houston in exchange.

A fine series this would be, pairing power programs and huge fan bases from the nation's two most bragging-rights-prone conferences (whether they have the same things to brag about is beside the point). The two haven't played since 1972 despite being in the same time zone and calorically similar. Yes, let your mind boggle at the tailgating combination here.

The neutral-siter is a satisfactory gimmick and crowd-pleaser for a one-time matchup, but a series of college games at NFL stadiums? Should there then be a neutral-neutral-site game in St. Louis, which is about halfway between Green Bay and Houston?

I'm with LSU athletic director Joe Alleva here (via Jim Kleinpeter): "The biggest thing to consider is the value of playing a game that far away versus the value of playing a game in Tiger Stadium." But I'm biased against playing college games in NFL stadiums, so don't listen to me.

Either way, let us focus on the tailgating thing.
