Wisconsin 2024 Football Schedule: Full List of Badgers’ Opponents This Fall

    Year 1 of a new era saw the Badgers fall short of expectations and there are some new Big Ten opponents on the Wisconsin 2024 football schedule.

    Following a 7-6 finish in 2023 that ended with a 35-31 loss to LSU in the ReliaQuest Bowl, the Wisconsin Badgers hope to find some relief this fall. The Wisconsin 2024 football schedule features two new Big Ten members who migrated from the Pac-12 and a National Championship contender, leaving an uphill battle for the Badgers in the upcoming season.

    The Badgers start the season against a MAC team for the second consecutive year, kicking things off against Western Michigan after beating Buffalo at the beginning of last year. They’ll then host South Dakota State before closing out their non-conference slate against Alabama. The Badgers are 1-1 against the Crimson Tide, losing the last matchup in 2015.

    To start Big Ten play, the Badgers will face the USC Trojans, a new opponent in the conference. Lincoln Riley’s team is one of four Pac-12 teams joining the Big Ten, alongside the Washington Cougars, Oregon Ducks, and UCLA Bruins. Wisconsin won the last time out against USC, beating the Trojans in the 2015 Holiday Bowl.

    The Badgers host Oregon six games later, a team that beat the Badgers in the 2020 Rose Bowl.


    Luke Fickell’s team beat the next two opponents on the Wisconsin 2024 football schedule last year, 38-17 over the Purdue Boilermakers and 24-13 over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, but lost to the Northwestern Wildcats. The Badgers didn’t face Penn State in 2023, but have lost the five games against the Nittany Lions, including the last time the teams met in 2021.

    The Wisconsin 2024 football schedule concludes with regular season matchups against two teams they beat last season, the Nebraska Cornhuskers (24-17) and Minnesota Golden Gophers (28-14).
