We hope you took a half day today, because the Duke’s Mayo Bowl kicks off at 11:00 a.m. CST between the Wisconsin Badgers (3-3 overall) and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (4-4 overall, 3-4 ACC). That’s soon! Grab some snacks, grab a coffee beer and grab a spot on the couch because it is the last GAMEDAY OF THE SEASON!!!!

Wisconsin’s defense will face a talented Wake Forest offense that will probably try to take the top off of UW’s secondary while the Badgers offense will be looking to Establish The Run with, hopefully, Jalen Berger and Garrett Groshek.
Let’s bring that Mayo Trophy home to Wisconsin where it very clearly belongs.

Wake Forest usually doesn’t release a depth chart but did for the bowl game (here is a breakdown) and Wisconsin might as well not release one, but here theirs is anyways. We’ll post any roster updates here that we get before kickoff too.

You’ll notice former Wisconsin commit WR Nolan Groulx is listed as a backup WR and PR for Wake Forest, so we’ll probably get a chance to see him in action just not wearing the color uniform we thought we would.
On the #Badgers pregame radio show Matt Lepay just mentioned that the starting offensive line will look a little bit different:— Matt Belz (@savedbythebelz) December 30, 2020
Dietzen-Seltzner-Sampson-Furtney-Beach from left to right.
Jalen Berger is back, but no Davis/Pryor/Loudermilk for Wake Forest.

One key contributor at OLB, CJ Goetz, also unavaillable. pic.twitter.com/lRWv2cQizW
