Wisconsin Badgers' home opener will be a Friday night game
MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Badgers will kick off their delayed football season not on a Saturday, but on a Friday night -- Oct. 23.
The Badgers will host Illinois at an empty Camp Randall Stadium. This is a rematch of a last-second Wisconsin loss last year at Illinois.
