In just the second meeting all-time between the two schools, Wisconsin will host Oregon State at 11 a.m. (CT) on Sept. 10 at Camp Randall Stadium, it was announced on Tuesday.
The game will be broadcast on either ESPN or ESPN2.
Wisconsin and Oregon State have
met only once prior, with UW coming away with a 23-20 victory on Oct. 14, 1961
The Beavers, who went 5-7 last season, including a 4-5 mark in the
Pac-10, are led by junior quarterback Ryan
Katz (2,401 yards and 17 TDs). Senior
wide receiver James Rodgers also returns for Oregon State and enters the
season with the second-most all-purpose yards for active players in the FBS
with an OSU record 5,784.
The match-up will mark the third time
in the last five seasons that the Badgers have faced an opponent from the
Pac-10. Wisconsin beat Arizona State, 20-19, last season and opened the 2007
season with a 42-21 victory over Washington State.
