It won't be Camp Randall West in Minneapolis Saturday, when the Wisconsin Badgers play Minnesota.

Badger fans used to take up to half the Metrodome in past years.

But the new TCF Bank Stadium on the Minnesota campus is sold out for the season and all but a handful of the 50,000 fans will be screaming for the Gophers tomorrow.

Badgers' quarterback Scott Tolzien says it will be a challenge to play in a hostile environment for the first time this year.

The Badgers played their first four home games in Madison, and they won all of them.

Minnesota is 3-1, and both won their Big Ten openers last week.

Badgers sophomore Kevin Zeitler will start at right guard again in place of junior Bill Nagy who's been out with wrist and foot injuries from a moped accident.

But coach Bret Bielema says Nagy could get some playing time Saturday. Freshman running back Montee Ball is also expected to make his Badgers' debut.

There was talk about red-shirting him, but coach Bret Bielema says he's excited to see what Ball can do.
