For the eighth time in the last 10 seasons, the Wisconsin Badgers football team will be playing in a Jan. 1 bowl game, earning an invitation to the 2014 Capital One Bowl last Sunday following the end of the regular season for college football teams.
The 19th-ranked Badgers will take on No. 8 South Carolina of the strong Southeastern Conference (SEC) Wednesday, Jan. 1, at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando. Kickoff is set for noon Central Time.
It will be UW’s fifth trip to Orlando in the last nine seasons. The Badgers have found success recently in Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium, going 3-1 there since 2006. In two of its three victories in Orlando, UW has defeated a higher-ranked team.
