The USC Trojans and Wisconsin Badgers will face off in the Holiday Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Calif.

USC finished the regular season 8–5 and lost to Stanford, 41–22, in the Pac-12 Championship game on Dec. 5. Since Clay Helton was named interim head coach after Steve Sarkisian was fired, USC won five of the last eight games. The Trojans played in the Holiday Bowl last year, defeating Nebraska, 45–42.

The Badgers concluded their season 9–3 after beating Minnesota 31–21 on Nov. 28. Running back Dare Ogunbowale rushed for a career-high 155 yards against the Golden Gophers. After finishing third in the Big 10, Wisconsin will make its 14th consecutive bowl game appearance.
