GREEN BAY - Get ready to Jump Around at Lambeau Field.
College football is coming back to Lambeau the Saturday before Labor Day, 2016.
The Badgers will host the currently 10th ranked Louisiana State University Tigers.
It's been 30 years since the last college game at Lambeau, and it'll be three more before the next one.
The UW Regents approved the deal today.
The Packers say they will foot the three million dollar bill to host the big game.
Lambeau Field hosts the marching band each year, and in 2006 it hosted the UW hockey team.
But come September 2016, the UW Badger football team will face the LSU Tigers at the storied stadium.
“It's something we've been working on for months and really pleased that it was finally approved,” said Mark Murphy, the Packers President and CEO.
The last time a college game was played in Lambeau: 30 years ago. St. Norbert beat Fordham University.
Murphy says he worked closely with UW athletic director Barry Alvarez to bring the high-profile game here.
“It's going to be great. It's two of the top programs in the country,” said Murphy.
Murphy says with 80 thousand fans expected, it'll boost the economy.
“Normally on an average home game we do $12 to $14 million in an economic impact so we're expecting to do that,” said Murphy.
The former president of the Brown County Wisconsin Alumni Association says he and his fellow Green Bay Badgers have already started the party planning.
“Like they have transformed Pasadena and the Rose Bowl into Camp Randall west, they will transform Lambeau field into Camp Randall north,” said Steve Pipp.
It's not just the UW alumni excited to have the team play here at Lambeau. Others taking the stadium tour Friday say it's important to the whole state.
“It's our leading university I think that they represent the state extremely well,” said Carol Enders of Waukesha.
Ticket prices for the big game haven't been set.
The UW says it will receive 40 thousand tickets: 7500 will go to students.
The rest, the Packers expect to go faster than a running back on a touchdown drive.
An armed robbery suspect sustained life-threatening injuries after being shot in Fond du Lac County.
First responders helped ring in the holidays at the 45th annual Howard-Suamico Christmas Parade.
Christmas is just two and half weeks away, and kids and families are getting into the holiday spirit.
Single digit temps around the area caused problems in the Fox Valley Saturday morning.
The frigid temperatures forced some area communities to cancel their weekend Christmas celebrations. But New London braved the cold for its annual Holiday of Wonder Parade.
Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's all of the injuries, but many Packers fans are saying "no thanks," to this weekend's Packers game.
