Notre Dame is apparently looking at not playing Wisconsin at Lambeau Field this upcoming season.

The Fighting Irish and the Badgers currently scheduled to meet October 3 on the historic field to play in the most highly-anticipated non-conference game of the season, but it sounds like might not happen as planned.

According to Pete Samspon, Brian Kelly said during an interview with Mike Tirico that Notre Dame is looking at pulling games out of NFL stadiums and bringing them back to campus.

Below is a live look at my reaction to this update from Kelly.

If Notre Dame refuses to play at Lambeau or a different neutral site, then the Badgers should refuse to take the field.

We’re not getting bullied into playing a road game under the lights against Notre Dame. That’s not what we signed up for.

We signed up for a pair of neutral site games. If the Fighting Irish think they can bully the Badgers into changing the deal, then they can do it over my dead body.

Anyone who thinks I’ll allow Notre Dame to dictate the terms of this deal has lost their damn minds. They don’t call me King in the North for no reason at all.

They do it because I move the needle when called upon and I always look out for my guys.

If I have to flex my muscles back in my home state to make sure Notre Dame doesn’t screw us, then that’s what I’ll do.

This game will happen at a neutral site or it won’t happen at all. There’s no way Wisconsin can tolerate Notre Dame trying to bring this game back to South Bend.
