2014 Capital One Bowl: Wisconsin Badgers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks


The BCS Bowl announcements are coming tonight and with it are the announcements of the other slew of bowl games that will be played over the holiday season. One of those bowl games is the Capital One Bowl which this year will feature two very interesting teams meeting in an intriguing matchup.

Both teams started out with National Championship aspirations but a season of tough breaks and hard losses have landed the Wisconsin Badgers and South Carolina Gamecocks in the Capital One Bowl.

Wisconsin’s fall from the top last year is harder than South Carolina’s who were in a similar position last season when they played Michigan in the Gator Bowl. But the Badgers went to the Rose Bowl last season and now find themselves with a new head coach and a new, less valuable bowl game to play in.

That still doesn’t take the pride out of things as the Capital One Bowl is still a higher end bowl to draw and the Badgers won’t sulk through it. Neither will the Gamecocks, specifically their star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who has one more chance to show off his skills in a meaningful game in front of a national audience.
