SAN DIEGO, Cali. (WKOW) -- There was no holiday break for the badger football team, as they prep for the Holiday Bowl.

Wisconsin practiced on Christmas day and again this afternoon out in sunny San Diego. Every practice rep this bowl season has really come in handy for the Badgers young offensive line. They plan to start four freshmen up front against USC, just as they did in their last game against Minnesota.
Due to injuries, they have had six offensive line combinations this season. But with four and a half weeks to prepare, they've finally been able to build some cohesion.

"I think there's no doubt that through the yet what seemed to be misfortunes becomes opportunities for others," Head Coach Paul Chryst said after Saturday's practice, "I like the way the guys have practiced and played this o-line has played one game together, but we're probably going on a month of practicing together so I think there's some benefit to that maybe hopefully."

The Badgers take on the Trojans, Wednesday, December 30 at 9:30 p.m.
