5 out of 6 say we will defeat the Badgers.

I have always liked USA Today.

I think it all comes down to the mindset of the team on gameday; however, after hearing a few recent interviews with Connor, Kelcy, Jadeveon and others whom will be playing their last game in the GnB, I don't think that is going to be an issue!

I think UCF beats Baylor. I was not impressed at all by Baylors defense this year. They played probably 3 quality teams all year, were crushed by OSU in one and the third was against Texas. UCF has some good players and you can bet there will be at least a little bit of overlooking them as they come from the AAC and have never been a powerhouse. Blake Bortles is also getting some projections to the first round I bet he tries to show out against a bad Baylor defense in his last collegiate game to boost his draft profile. UCF has played some pretty poor games but they play up to their competition. UCF 34 Baylor 31

Hope they're right...I want our guys that are leaving to go out on top.

Auburn didn't win the SEC with smoke and mirrors (although it did look like that in their last 2 games). I expect that when the Sec champ lines up against the ACC champ the chips will fall like they usually do.

The only place I read for college football predictions is College Football News.

Wisconsin vs. South Carolina
Knee-jerk reaction to matchup: Just how much does South Carolina care? Will Jadeveon Clowney be looking to put on a show to secure his spot as the No. 1 overall draft pick? Will Steve Spurrier's team bring its A game to the post-season and come up with a third straight bowl win over the Big Ten? The problem might be an ultra-motivated Wisconsin that's looking for a signature victory, especially after the really, really weird performance in the regular season-ending loss to Penn State. If the Badgers had remembered try to run the ball against the Nittany Lions, and won, the pick would be the Gamecocks, but, in one of the best games of the bowl season.

Early pick that will probably change: WI 24-23

I think our ace in the hole is Shaw. The kid is a winner. And if for some reason we end up as the home team, its in the bag. LOL

Your run defense is probably more important. If you can stuff the Badger running game without having to depart from your base defense excessively, you'll win 24 - 17 or thereabouts. This is what my head tells me will happen.

I was going to say my heart says the Badgers will win, but after dropping three straight (winnable) Rose Bowls in a row, my heart pretty much figures the same thing. A close loss where if you change the outcome of four or five plays the Badgers might have won.

CFN picked against us? Well, considering they have picked against us all year...

I love having sensible fans from other teams on here. No smack talk. Just open conversations about fact based opinions. It's nice. Especially since some unnamed fan bases seem to only be able to come on here and talk crap.

Agree, but stuffing the run means we get penetration and disrupt the play. If I was your OC, I'd run, run, run...and run it right up the middle.

I'm with Zoo. We Badger fans have been beaten down in recent years by some really wrenching losses. I just don't see us pulling this one out.

Still looking forward to getting shitplowed for a week in the Florida sun with everyone, though!

On Wisconsin.

This game will be very crucial for our young LBs to show how much they'd learned and matured over the season. They will really need to step up and hit the proper gaps on the run plays, something they've struggled with quite a bit over the season. The Florida and Clemson games in particular. Hopefully the extra practice time will help the team game-plan and get everyone onto the same page....

Lol wut?

You might as well walk into a preschool class and ask the kids who's going to win the gamed. CFN is a joke.
