Every Wisconsin football nonconference game on the schedule through 2030

The Badgers have a number of high-profile nonconference matchups set for Luke Fickell’s first couple of seasons at the helm.

One of them is the biggest name in college football. Wisconsin welcomes Alabama to Camp Randall stadium in 2024, and takes a return trip to the Crimson Tide in 2025.

The Badgers will have a rematch with Washington State headline their non-conference slate in 2023. They still have UCLA on the schedule as a non-conference opponent, but barring more conference shakeups, the Bruins will be a conference opponent come 2024. Here is a look at every nonconference game on the schedule through 2033:
