Madison, WI (WXOW) - -

Any Badger fans traveling to the Dallas area for the football opener might want to pack an alarm clock.

Get up early and you can be a part of ESPN's College Game Day.

The network announced their crew will be in \Fort Worth on September 5. 

That will be Paul Chryst's debut at head coach of the Badgers facing off against third-ranked Alabama.

Chryst coached Wisconsin through the spring.  But things start getting real when fall camp opens next week and the players look forward to preparing with their new coach.

"I really like how he operates and I really like how he sees the game and the kind of guy he is. I think he's a fun coach to play for and I think he really understands how to get the most out of his players," said quarterback Joel Stave.

"Everyone believes in Coach Chryst.  He's a Madison guy.  He's able to come back and lead a team.  We don't want a bad season under our belt so I think he's going to facilitate the best kind of scheme he can possibly do," said running back Corey Clement.

That September 5 game against Alabama will be at Texas Stadium in Arlington.
