After much speculation, the Wisconsin Badgers (9-3) will take on the #25 USC Trojans (8-5) in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego, CA on December 30th at 9:30 PM CT on ESPN.

The Badgers are 0-6 all time against the Trojans, but the two teams have not faced off since 1966. This is Wisconsin’s first appearance in the Holiday Bowl, which was started in 1978. USC won the Holiday Bowl 45-42 over Nebraska last season.

Wisconsin will look to finish the season with 10 wins after losses to three top 13 teams: #2 Alabama, #5 Iowa, and #13 Northwestern. The Badgers will be playing in their 14th consecutive bowl game.
