When the Badgers (9-1 Big Ten, 12-1 overall) face off against the Miami Hurricanes (7-2 ACC, 10-2 overall) on January 30 in the Orange Bowl, it will be the 16th straight season that Wisconsin has played in a postseason game.Various players along the way have made their way to the pros, and the coaching carousel of college football has hit Wisconsin just like other major programs.But even with the program’s familiarity to bowl games, it’d be remiss to ignore the uniqueness of this season to the Badgers.In 2017, Wisconsin recorded its first-ever undefeated regular season, a major milestone for a program that has long been known as a stable one rather than a national powerhouse.That spotless record, which would later be tarnished by a 27-21 loss to Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship, was produced on the backs of a truly exceptional defense.Led by the stellar inside play of senior Leon Jacobs, junior T.J.

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. Sometimes the opposite is true. And sometimes, as the Wisconsin Badgers (1-1 Big Ten, 5-7 overall) learned Wednesday night, being smart is best of all.When Western Kentucky (6-4) guard Darius Thompson silenced the Kohl Center with a runner that knotted the game at 80-80 with 2.0 seconds to play, head coach Greg Gard’s options were limited.He could have Brevin Pritzl fling the ball the length of the court and hope for a short jumper, he could bank on a running 40-footer a la Ben Brust in 2013, or he could run the clock out and take his chances in overtime.Instead, he sent freshman guard Brad Davison to draw a charge 93 feet from the basket.

Simply dazzling. Or is dominating the right word?
