Preseason date finalized

The Green Bay Packers' Week 3 preseason game against New England will be played on Friday, Aug. 26, at 7 p.m. (CDT) in Lambeau Field.<p>

The 'Green' ticket package game will serve as the Bishop's Charities Game, along with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The Packers' Aug. 11 contest vs. San Diego, which will be the 56th annual Upper Midwest Shrine Game, will go to 'Gold' ticket package holders.

The final three preseason games will air across the Packers' state-wide television network, including WFRV-TV in Green Bay, WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee, WKOW-TV in Madison, WAOW-TV in Wausau/Rhinelander, WXOW-TV in La Crosse, WQOW-TV in Eau Claire, WYOW-TV in Eagle River and WJMN-TV in Marquette (Mich.). While carried nationally on ESPN, the initial preseason contest also will be shown locally on WFRV (CBS 5).

As was the case the past two years, the broadcast team will consist of Kevin Harlan (play-by-play), Bill Maas (analyst), Jessie Garcia (sideline reporter) and Larry McCarren (pre-game and halftime).
