Countdown to kickoff

Tomorrow is game day! In preparation for that, the team has the Champs Sports Bowl Kickoff Luncheon and its normal Friday walkthrough on the schedule.

Wake up is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. with brunch at 10 a.m. At 11 a.m., head coach Bret Bielema will take part in the Champs Sports Bowl Kickoff Press Conference with Miami head coach Randy Shannon. The Kickoff Luncheon starts at noon and includes the ESPN game announcers as emcees. If last year was any indication, there is a talent show portion of the event involving players from both teams. Early word is that A.J. Fenton will be playing the guitar. We will have full coverage of the event on UWBadgers.com.

The team will return to the hotel and have meetings from 2:30-4 p.m. Busses will leave for practice at 4:15 p.m. with the walkthrough scheduled for 4:45 p.m.

The Champs Sports Bowl Pep Rally will be held at Pointe Orlando beginning at 5 p.m. Coach Bielema is scheduled to make an appearance at 5:45 p.m. Look for video coverage of the event later in the day.

Team dinner will be from 6:30-7:30 p.m. with a team meeting scheduled right after dinner.
