LSU-Wisconsin series close to a done deal

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Neutral site games continue to play prominently in the LSU football landscape.

CBSSports.com and others are reporting the Tigers are nearing an agreement to battle The Wisconsin Badgers at Houston's Reliant Stadium, during the 2014 season.

The reports also say the Tigers and Badgers would play again sometime in the 2016 to 2018 window, likely in 2017, at historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva says nothing has been finalized, but confirms a deal is close.

LSU has played neutral site affairs in Atlanta and then Dallas to begin the 2010 and 2011 seasons, and is scheduled to return to Dallas this year to kick things off with TCU.
