Badgers headed to Outback Bowl

It's official: Wisconsin is heading to the Outback Bowl. Maybe it wasn't the bowl we hoped for at the beginning of the season, but it's our fourth straight January bowl game, and we'll get another shot at an SEC team. I've seen Tennessee and Auburn thrown around, hoping for Tennessee, since we haven't played them in over 20 years and we've played Auburn in two bowl games this century already.

Also glad a mediocre Michigan game will not be rewarded with a January bowl.

More thoughts later. Anyone aside from Polzin planning on going?

Interesting -- the Capital One Bowl felt obligated to explain it's bowl selection stance:


On behalf of its 2007-08 Selection Committee, Florida Citrus Sports Team Selection Committee Chairman Tony Martin and Executive Director Steve Hogan have released the following statement in regard to the University of Wisconsin:

“While working to select participating teams for this year’s Capital One Bowl, it has become clear that we are fortunate to have four outstanding teams available to us in the Big Ten Conference. Illinois (9-3, 6-2), Michigan (8-4, 6-2), Wisconsin (9-3, 5-3) and Penn State (8-4, 4-4) are schools which have had comparatively successful seasons, whose programs are steeped in tradition, and whose fans are amongst the finest in the country.

“Postseason bowl trips should be an exciting experience which serves to reward a deserving team, its coaches, administrators and fans for a successful season. When considering that the University of Wisconsin has appeared in Orlando each of the past two years, there are four comparably deserving teams available, and after consulting with our Team Selection Committee as well as officials from Wisconsin and the Big Ten, it has been decided that it is in the best interests of all concerned to release the Badgers from Capital One Bowl consideration. We believe this will help expedite the process of selecting a postseason destination for the University of Wisconsin and its fans.”
