Wisconsin football vs. Alabama Crimson Tide television channel, kickoff time announced

Wisconsin football’s 2024 marquee home contest against top-ranked Alabama will be a Fox “Big Noon Kickoff” game the network announced.

The network announced the following three games: Texas at Michigan on Sept. 7, Alabama at Wisconsin on Sept. 14 and the classic Michigan at Ohio State on Nov. 30.

Wisconsin did not play on Fox “Big Noon Kickoff” during the 2022 or 2023 seasons. That was in contrast to 2021, during which it felt as if the Badgers were on the network every week.

2024 sees a renewed outlook for Luke Fickell and the Badgers as well as a jam-packed schedule. Wisconsin hosts Alabama, visits USC, hosts Penn State, visits Iowa and hosts Oregon. The schedule is a challenge, but it will lead to some impressive television slots.

An optimist would look at Wisconsin’s slate, starting with Alabama on Sept. 14, and see a golden opportunity for resume-building wins throughout the year.

Wisconsin will enter the season with high expectations in Year 2 under Luke Fickell and Phil Longo.

Alabama, on the other hand, enters with a new head coach in Kalen DeBoer after college football legend Nick Saban retired this offseason. The Crimson Tide will still be terrific, but they could be beatable while DeBoer installs his program.

The national audience will get to watch Wisconsin go for the upset.
