Capital One Bowl 2014: Wisconsin to play South Carolina in Orlando

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, the Badgers have landed in the Capital One Bowl. There, they'll face No. 9 South Carolina.

Wisconsin may have fallen short of a fourth straight BCS bowl berth, but the Badgers have nevertheless landed in a prime game. Having finished No. 19 in the last-ever BCS standings, Wisconsin will face No. 9 South Carolina in the Capital One Bowl.

After the BCS bowls, the Capital One gets the first pick at remaining teams and also offers the highest payout among the non-BCS bowls. Wisconsin finished 9-3, losing only to Arizona State in a highly controversial ending, Ohio State in a tightly contested affair and Penn State in a shocking upset on Senior Day. South Carolina, meanwhile, finished 10-2 (6-2 SEC), with losses to just Georgia and Tennessee. The two teams have never met.

SB Nation's Nam Le on South Carolina:

For the first time in Steve Spurrier's tenure at South Carolina, the offense is the surest thing the Gamecocks have to offer. Excluding the head-scratching loss to Tennessee in mid-October, Connor Shaw has led an efficient offense that is a threat to both run and pass, thanks to steady, if unspectacular, line play and a deep stable of weapons at the offensive skill positions.

Defensively, the headliner is obviously Jadeveon Clowney who, despite battling nagging injuries and lackluster statistical production, has been quite good in his farewell tour with the Gamecocks. South Carolina's young back seven was vulnerable early in the season, but the Gamecocks' defensive backfield rounded into form during the final month of the season, thanks to the maturation of the likes of true freshman linebacker and leading tackler Skai Moore.
