SDS will break down all 10 SEC bowl games from a numbers perspective, and here is a look at this year’s Capital One Bowl between South Carolina and Wisconsin.
This is quickly becoming a more anticipated matchup around college football. Two things that jump out about the numbers from Wisconsin is their running game and their redzone defense. The Badgers are averaging 283 yards per game, while their defense has been stout in the redzone, allowing a Big Ten-low 11 TDs. That’s less than Michigan State’s great defense has allowed.

South Carolina has dominated turnover margin, and they’ll need to force a couple against Wisconsin’s offense.
