The Wisconsin Badgers kick off their 2014 season with a Advocare Texas matchup against the LSU Tigers on Saturday, Aug. 30.
But that might not even be the biggest event of the night.
Houston Texans defensive end and former UW alum J.J. Watt and his foundation are hosting a tailgate event from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. inside the Houston Methodist Training Center.
Tickets for the tailgate are $60 for adults and $25 for kids ages 12 and younger.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Justin J. Watt Foundation, which promotes after-school opportunities for middle school-aged children.
