Badgers to defeat Florida St.

Friend of mine in Baraboo did his undergrad at FSU. The trash talking shall now begin.

Madison - Wisconsin tonight accepted an invitation to play in the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 27 in Orlando, Fla..

The Badgers (7-5) will face Florida State (8-4) of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The game will be televised by ESPN starting at 3:30 p.m. (Milwaukee time).

This will be the fifth consecutive bowl game for UW in the state of Florida, including the third time in the last four years the Badgers have played in Orlando.

It will be the first meeting between UW and Florida State. UW is 5-2 all-time against teams currently in the ACC. In their last game against an ACC opponent, the Badgers won at North Carolina, 14-5, on Sept. 18, 2005.

UW has played an ACC team in a bowl game just once in school history, defeating Duke, 34-20, in the 1995 Hall of Fame Bowl.
