Wisconsin vs. LSU live stream coverage will be made available at game start time on Saturday (Aug. 30). The Wisconsin vs. LSU game might be one of the best from Week 1 of the college football season. Both schools are ranked in the top 15 and have thoughts about making the college football playoff. According to a report from ESPN on Saturday, the experts are split on how this game is going to turn out. Most feel it will be low scoring, though, and the over/under is at just 49 from the oddsmakers.

The No. 13 ranked LSU Tigers are trying to get noticed in the SEC again and beating a highly ranked team in the first non-conference game of the season could do it. While many teams have scheduled cupcake opponents during Week 1, LSU put one of the big threats from the Big Ten on theirs. The No. 14 Wisconsin Badgers have similar thoughts of pulling out a great win in the first game, but it is going to be tough to win this one in enemy territory. Though it is a neutral location, LSU fans travel in droves.

The Wisconsin vs. LSU live stream coverage will be available through the Watch ESPN application. Game time is 9 p.m. ET and the broadcast will also air on ESPN from NRG Stadium, in Houston, TX. Current odds for the game have LSU as 3 ½ point favorites, but that spread means almost nothing with ranked opponents. Last season, LSU finished 10-3 with a win in the Outback Bowl and Wisconsin lost in the Capital One Bowl to slip to 9-4. It shows why both teams have title hopes again.
