LSU’s matchup against Wisconsin on Sept. 3 at Lambeau Field will be cool for many reasons.
There’s the venerable site, which has never before hosted a major college football game. There’s the pairing between the historic programs from two of the country’s best conferences. There’s the anticipation that the action on the field should be stellar as well.
If all that wasn’t enough to make Tigers players and coaches eager for this game, their locker room will add to the unique flavor of the experience.

Here’s more from Dellenger’s story:
A staff of 10 completed the temporary locker room and training room Friday after 12 hours, laying carpeting —deep purple in color —over the court and placing 80 newly-constructed plastic laminate lockers against the walls of the basketball facility. The hoops court is used by Packers’ players for recreational purposes, said Gabrielle Valdez Dow, Packers vice president of marketing and fan engagement.
“We built a second locker room for LSU. That, in itself, is new to us,” said Valdez Dow, who was not sure of a cost of the project. “Our operations team has been planning (this) since last year, what the lockers will look like and all.”
Who knew there was a basketball court inside Lambeau Field?
Consider this development another reason LSU players should look forward to the season opener. If they appreciate football history, this will be a moment never to forget.
