Last year, the Wisconsin Badgers® took down the hometown Miami Hurricanes®, the first time a Big Ten team has won the game since 2010.

This year, the game will serve as a playoff semi-final between the top-rated Alabama Crimson Tide® and fourth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners®, as the teams square off for a trip to the national championship. It will also feature two of the finalists for the Heisman Trophy®, annually awarded to the nation’s top player, in Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.
