Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The South Carolina Gamecocks will take on the Wisconsin Badgers in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day.
The matchup was announced Sunday night. It's the first meeting between the two school in history.
USC is 10-2 and coming off their 31-17 win over Clemson in the season finale, while Wisconsin (9-3) lost their last game versus Penn State.
Officials with the bowl likely had to decide if they wanted the Gamecocks or the Missouri Tigers in the contest, and perhaps chose USC because their fans would be more likely to travel to Orlando.
The Gamecocks last played in the Capital One Bowl in 2012, when they defeated Nebraska 30-13.
The game is set for 1 p.m.
