Wisconsin Badgers heading to Las Vegas Bowl


The Wisconsin Badgers will play the Arizona State Sun Devils in the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 30, 9:30 p.m., UW Athletics announced on Sunday afternoon.

“I’m extremely proud of our team for earning the right to play another game together, and we are excited that opportunity will come in the Las Vegas Bowl,” Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst said in a statement. “We look forward to the challenge of playing a very good Arizona State team.”

This will be the 20th year in a row the Badgers will play in a bowl game, the third-longest active bowl streak in the country behind Georgia (25) and Oklahoma (23).

“We are very excited to be the inaugural Big Ten team to play in the Las Vegas Bowl,” UW Director of Athletics Chris McIntosh said. “Our fans have a great tradition of support in Vegas, even as recently as a couple weeks ago when our men’s basketball team won the Maui Invitational. Allegiant Stadium is a tremendous venue and I know our players will have a great bowl experience.”

Arizona State finished the regular season 8-4 overall and 6-3 in the Pac-12.
