Rowr! Badgers, Tigers invade Lambeau


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay is bracing itself for an invasion of Badgers and Tigers.

Fans of Wisconsin and LSU are expected to make this a big weekend at Lambeau Field with their Saturday afternoon game. The Green Bay Post-Gazette reports ( ) that this college opener could be bigger than the Packers' 2011 season opener after they won the Super Bowl.

LSU fans travel well, and the Post-Gazette reports seven charter flights are scheduled to land Thursday. That's on top of a parade of fans for both teams arriving by RV, car and bus.

Tony Onellion, an LSU season ticket holder from Slidell, Louisiana, says some Tigers fans won't be coming due to catastrophic flooding in the state. But he says many others will be eager for a break.
