The Badgers got Bama.

Alabama and Wisconsin have agreed to a home-and-home series for the 2024 and 2025 seasons, the schools announced on Wednesday. It will be Alabama's first trip to a Big Ten stadium – and a stadium north of the Mason-Dixon line, for that matter – since the Tide visited Penn State in 2011.

"It's going to be awesome to have Alabama in Camp Randall," Wisconsin athletics director Barry Alvarez said in a release. "And it's going to be a great experience for our players and fans to be able to go down there (Tuscaloosa) and see the atmosphere and the intensity that they have for football in a SEC stadium.

"All along, I've felt like we can match up with people and be competitive with anyone. We've shown that in bowl games against Southeastern Conference teams. And now, we're going against the best in Alabama, a program that has consistently been in the playoffs and playing for a championship."

Nick Saban also offered his excitement for the matchup.

"We are excited to add another high-caliber, non-conference game to our future schedule," Alabama coach Nick Saban said. "We played a great game with Wisconsin in Arlington a few years back and this home-and-home series will be a tremendous opportunity for our programs to play in two of the best atmospheres in college football. Matchups like this are so important to the health of college football because it provides fans exciting matchups and players new challenges."

The teams have met just twice previously, with Wisconsin winning the first meeting 15-0 in Madison in 1928 and Alabama topping the Badgers 35-17 in a neutral site game to open the 2015 season.
