The No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers look to cap their successful 2017 season with a big win in South Florida, as they take on the No. 10 Miami Hurricanes in the Capital One Orange Bowl.

Wisconsin (12-1) could reach 13 wins for the first time in school history, but to do so, it must defeat a Miami (10-2) program rebounding into prominence under Mark Richt.

The Badgers must get their run game going offensively while not turning the ball over. On the opposite side of the ball, UW cannot give up big plays as seen in the Big Ten Championship game (four plays totaling 271 of Ohio State’s yards) and must contain the likes of quarterback Malik Rosier and Travis Homer on the ground.
