The Wisconsin Badgers go bowling Tuesday night
The Wisconsin Badgers have been preparing to play the Oklahoma State Cowboys for the past few weeks. The Cowboys come into the matchup with a 7-5 record. The Badgers are 6-6. The Badgers have been using the month to evaluate the roster for next season. Interim head coach Jim Leonhard has been prepping the team and will be making decisions during the game, while new head coach Luke Fickell has been in the background preparing for next season.
This will be Leonhard’s first bowl game as the Badgers’ acting head coach. The Badgers have an overall bowl record of 18-15 before Tuesday night’s game. Wisconsin has won two-straight bowl games and seven of their last eight bowl appearances. Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy is 11-5 in bowl games. Last season, his Cowboys came back to beat Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl, a New Years Six game. Oklahoma State is 21-11 in bowl games all time. They’ve won their last two bowl appearances.
Odds for the Badgers and Cowboys
According to Odds Shark, the Wisconsin Badgers are -3.5 favorites over the Cowboys. It’s an interesting prediction, as the Badgers have not yet named their starting quarterback for the game. Fortunately for the Badgers, the Cowboys are in a similar position this postseason. Their regular-season quarterback, Spencer Sanders, entered the transfer portal recently. Garret Rangel will get the nod for Oklahoma State at quarterback.
The over/under for the contest is set by Odds Shark at 45 points. The betting public loves the under with two new quarterbacks playing Tuesday. It should be a fun game to watch as two young teams put stuff on tape for next season.
