It appears a Wisconsin-LSU football series is getting closer to reality.

LSU's athletic director Joe Alleva said right now the working plan is for the Badgers and Tigers to play next years' season opener at Houston's Reliant Stadium.

LSU would travel to Wisconsin to play the Badgers at Lambeau Field, probably in 2017.

Both sides said details on the plan are still being worked out.
