College football scheduling works far in advance, as teams set home-and-home matchups years ahead of time.
The Badgers have the toughest home-and-home battle you can ask for already on the schedule. Alabama will pay Wisconsin a visit on Sept. 14, 2024, and the Badgers pay a return visit the following season.
Wisconsin also has a home and home set with UCLA, Washington State and Pittsburgh. This season, the Badgers play all three nonconference games at home. They take on Illinois State, Washington State and New Mexico State at Camp Randall.
Here is every game on Wisconsin’s nonconference schedule through 2033:
