LSU and Wisconsin to kick off 2014?

A Houston media outlet reported Thursday that LSU and Wisconsin would kick off the 2014 season playing one another in Reliant Stadium. TSD has the latest on the situation from LSU scheduling czar Verge Ausberry.

A Houston-area television station reported Thursday afternoon that LSU and Wisconsin would play in a season-opening kickoff classic game in 2014 in Reliant Stadium, the home of the NFL's Houston Texans.

In response to the report, LSU football scheduling czar Verge Ausberry told TSD that the Tigers had not yet finalized any such arrangement, either an opponent or a location, for a kickoff game in 2014.

Ausberry said Wisconsin has been one of the teams LSU is in discussions with about a season-opening game but that there have been others.

A separate high-ranking LSU official told TSD that while another location is possible for a 2014 season opener, the "goal is Reliant."
