The Wisconsin Badgers will cap off their season with a matchup against the LSU Tigers in the ReliaQuest Bowl on New Year’s Day to finish off the first year of the Luke Fickell era.

The Badgers, 7-5, ended the regular season on a good note, winning two consecutive games over Nebraska and Minnesota to set themselves up in the ReliaQuest Bowl.

LSU, on the other hand, finished their year on a three-game winning streak, capping off a 9-3 regular season.

Now, the Badgers will come into the game with a new-look roster, as several players have transferred from the program, while others have opted out of the bowl game.

But, they’ll have quarterback Tanner Mordecai to lead the way, whereas the Tigers will be without Heisman-winning quarterback Jayden Daniels, who opted out to pursue his 2024 NFL Draft aspirations.

Will the Badgers end their season and start the New Year on a high note? Or will it be the Tigers that come out the victors?
