The No. 10 Miami Hurricanes (7-1 ACC, 10-3 overall) had the rare opportunity to host their own bowl game, but after four quarters of the Capital One Orange Bowl, the No 6. Badgers (9-1 Big Ten, 13-1 overall) owned the field at Hard Rock Stadium.
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.

INDIANAPOLIS — One year after falling to Penn State in the Big Ten Championship, Wisconsin (9-1 Big Ten, 12-1 overall) arrived in Indianapolis looking to not only win the Big Ten, but also punch a ticket to the College Football Playoff. For 12 weeks, the Badgers leaned on its defense to wreak havoc on opposing teams and extend their undefeated season.
While the Badgers (9-0 Big Ten, 12-0 overall) moved into the No. 4 spot of the College Football Playoff rankings Tuesday night, there are still differing feelings regarding the team at both the local and national levels. There’s the committee who begrudgingly moved the undefeated team up at last, and the analysts who are certain of the Badgers’ place in the playoff with a victory versus Ohio State (8-1, 10-2) in the Big Ten Championship Game.
