ORLANDO, Fla (Learfield) Wisconsin will try to win its first bowl game in five years, when the 19th-ranked Badgers play Number-eight South Carolina at 12:00 CT in the Capital One Bowl.
The Badgers' last bowl victory came in the 2009 Champs Sports Bowl. Almost two dozen Wisconsin seniors will try to leave Orlando with a bowl victory, over losing three straight Rose Bowls in Pasadena.
South Carolina is going for its third straight bowl victory over a Big Ten team. The Gamecocks beat Michigan by five in the Outback Bowl a year ago, and they topped Nebraska 30-to-13 in the 2012 Capital One Bowl.
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is 3-and-4 in bowl games. Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen hopes to cap off his first season at the U-W with a bowl win.
