MADISON - The first game time of the 2013 home football schedule has been set and it couldn't be any better for Badgers' fans. Wisconsin's Homecoming game against Northwestern on Oct. 12 at Camp Randall Stadium will start at 2:30 p.m. CT.

The television network for the game will be announced at a later time.

It will be the 95th meeting between the two teams but the first since 2010. That season, NU played at Camp Randall Stadium in the final game of the regular season. The result was a 70-23 Badgers' victory that propelled them to a Big Ten title and a spot in the Rose Bowl.

Overall, Wisconsin leads the series with the Wildcats 56-33-5, including a 25-14-2 record in Madison. The two teams are in opposite divisions next season, but starting in 2014, UW and NU will share residency in the Big Ten's West Division.
