The Wisconsin Badgers dropped three straight Rose Bowl games and fell in last years Capital One Bowl and haven’t won a bowl game since the 2009 season when they upset Miami, 20-14, in the Champs Sports Bowl.
The current group of players has never won a bowl game. The Badgers will be trying to end that drought today when they take on the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida.
It’s not only the last game for the Badger seniors, but their last chance to win a bowl game, which has been a focal point for the players this week.
The Badgers are also trying to show that their 59-0 loss to Ohio State in the Big Ten title game is nothing more than a fluke.
Barry Alvarez gets another shot at a Bowl game, stepping in on an interim basis after Gary Andersen left for the head coaching job at Oregon State. Alvarez is 8-4 in bowl games.
Kickoff this morning in Tampa is set for 11am.
