Finally, it's game day once again. Wednesday night at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, the USC Trojans and Wisconsin Badgers will meet to cap the 2015 season.
For the Badgers, it's a chance to end the year the way they began it: with a win over a brand-name program. Defeating the Trojans would give UW its first bowl winning stream since 2009; Wisconsin defeated Auburn in the Outback Bowl for one of the most thrilling outcomes in last year's bowl state.
USC also made the Holiday Bowl last season, defeating Nebraska in a 45-42 shootout. This year's contest in San Diego brings together the 9-3 Badgers and 8-5 Trojans, also ranked No. 25. A win vs. Wisconsin would give USC a three-bowl winning streak, its first since winning four straight from 2006-09, including three consecutive Rose Bowls.
