Calm down guys, they are just saying that Wisc has the third toughest challenge in beating LSU on opening day. If memory serves, the Tigers have won every opening day since they started going to a neutral Texas stadium roughly 5 years ago.

Wisc is a tough team and all but there is no way that they will beat LSU this year. It will be a great challenge to open the season with since the offense will mostly have freshmen and sophomores at the skill spots but a solid veteran OL. The defense should be able to put Wisc on lock down pretty consistently.

It means they have Texas A&M as having the 2nd toughest opening-day opponent (USC), and have USC as having the 5th toughest opening-day opponent (A&M).
