DALLAS-- Both teams excel at the skill positions and have explosive scoring potential. The game will be determined by the depth of the Wisconsin line play pitted against the offensive minded enthusiasm of undefeated Western Michigan University. This will determine the 2017 Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic title. The Badgers will meet the Broncos in the 81st edition, in Arlington, Texas at AT&T Stadium on Monday, January 2.
This is the first Cotton Bowl Classic for either team. Wisconsin (10-3) and WMU (13-0) have met four times previously, all in Madison and with the Badgers leading the all-time series 3–1. The most recent meeting was on August 31, 2000, when Wisconsin defeated the Broncos, 19–7.
