Miami Hurricanes    

The Hurricanes rush into this Thursday night matchup sporting a 7-5 record that saw them finish 3rd overall in the Coastal Division of the ACC. The program earned that spot thanks to a mediocre 4-4 record in conference play. Naturally this saw them miss out on the ACC Championship Game. Nevertheless, Miami still managed to finish out the season with a bang by upsetting No. 24 Pittsburgh 24-3 in their final game of regulation. Now the Hurricanes vie to put on an equally exhilarating show in this year’s Pinstripe Bowl. Looking over the numbers, it’s absolutely clear that Miami has a statistical edge over Wisconsin albeit a small one. Currently scoring 30.9 and allotting 18.2, Miami’s numbers beat out the 29.3 that Wisconsin scores and the 24.3 that they allot.

Players to Watch: N’Kosi Perry (1,089 passing yards, 13 TD, 5 INT), Travis Homer (969 rushing yards, 4 TD, 6.3 AVG), and Jeff Thomas (563 receiving yards, 3 TD, 35 REC).

Wisconsin Badgers           

The Badgers charge into this post-Christmas match sporting 7-5 record. With a 5-4 record in Big Ten play this season, Wisconsin saw themselves finish 2nd overall in the West Division of the conference. Obviously they missed out on the Big Ten championship. But what’s worse is the fact that the program got blown out by the Minnesota Golden Gophers 37-15 in their final game of the season. Now Wisconsin is eager to get a shot at Miami in this year’s Pinstripe Bowl, in order to close out the year on a high note. But with a 3-4 record in their final 7 games of the season, can bettors really count on Wisconsin here?

Players to Watch: Alex Hornibrook (1,532 passing yards, 13 TD, 11 INT), Jonathan Taylor (1,989 rushing yards, 15 TD, 7.1 AVG), and AJ Taylor (508 receiving yards, 3 TD, 30 REC).
