The Green Bay Packers will pay the University of Wisconsin $3 million to play LSU in 2016, pending approval from the university's Board of Regents, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The deal is expected to be approved by the end of the week. The proposed game is scheduled for Sept. 3, 2016 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay and would be considered a Big Ten Conference home game because of television rights.

MANDEL: Week 7 Pickoff: Oregon-Washington, Florida-LSU; more

More from the Journal Sentinel:

In addition, UW will receive two complimentary 24-person suites and receive a minimum of 40,000 tickets from the Packers. Of those 40,000, 300 complimentary tickets will be given to the players' families; up to 475 tickets will go to the UW Band; and 7,500 tickets will be made available for sale to students at a discounted rate of at least 40% off the lowest price general-admission ticket. The agreement also stipulates that the Packers "shall arrange for and pay all costs associated with Lambeau Field as required for the event (including but not limited to, leasing Lambeau Field, paying all officials, etc.)."
