Badgers outlast the Hurricanes in the Orange Bowl

Wisconsin overcame a slow start to stave off Miami, beating the Hurricanes 34-24 in Saturday night’s Orange Bowl.

Badger quarterback Alex Hornibrook played his best game of the season, throwing for 258 yards and four touchdowns. Danny Davis caught three of them, while A.J. Taylor notched 105 receiving yards. Running back Jonathan Taylor broke Adrian Peterson’s single-season FBS freshman rushing record; he looks like he’ll be a Heisman candidate next season.
