South Carolina stopped
Wisconsin 34-24 at the Capital One Bowl in Orlando on New Years Day.  James White and Melvin Gordon combined to
rush for 250 yards, the Badgers did not punt in the game, yet they got beat on
New Year’s Day for the 4th straight time.   Wisconsin’s secondary got picked apart by
Gamecock’s QB Conner Shaw who threw for 3 TDs, ran for 1 and caught a TD pass
in the win.  Wisconsin tried to rally late under backup
Curt Phillips after Joel Stave led the game with a shoulder injury.  The Badgers season ends at 9-4.
