Badgers Upset Miami in Champs Sports Bowl

Posted:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- All that Miami speed was no match for the big, bad Badgers.

John Clay had 121 yards rushing and two touchdowns, powering No. 24 Wisconsin past 14th-ranked Miami 20-14 in the Champs Sports Bowl on Tuesday night.

Clay ran through, over and around the Hurricanes to help the Badgers (10-3) earn their first victory over a ranked opponent this season and claim a big win for the Big Ten.

Scott Tolzien threw for 260 yards, and Montee Ball added 61 yards rushing for a Wisconsin team touted as too big and too slow for the dynamic Hurricanes.

Jacory Harris struggled before throwing a touchdown pass to Thearon Collier with 1:22 remaining for the Hurricanes, who then recovered the onside kick. But Harris threw incomplete on fourth down to end any hope of a comeback.
