Miami will have a home game for the 2017 Orange Bowl against the Wisconsin Badgers. Set for December 30, the sixth ranked Badgers will take on the 11th ranked Hurricane at 7:00 PM. It will be Wisconsin’s first-ever trip to the Orange Bowl. ESPN will air the game from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Wisconsin came up one win short of appearing in the College Football Playoffs. A 27-21 loss did UW in last Saturday night in the Big Ten Championship. A win in the Orange Bowl would give Wisconsin a record 13-win season and mark the second straight years they won a BCS Major Bowl game.
