The Badgers were back on the practice field Friday morning for their second on-site session at Freedom High School in Orlando. Afterward, the team traveled to a nearby Best Buy store to make use of the gift cards the players were given by the Capital One Bowl. Here's a look at practice and the Best Buy visit in photos:

Storify: From Madison to Orlando

Hello, Orlando!

The Badgers escaped the cold of Madison in favor of 70-degree temperatures in Orlando with a two-hour flight on Christmas day. Most of UW's upperclassmen  were treated to first-class amenities in the Boeing 747 the Badgers used for the trip, including senior defensive ends Tyler Dippel and Pat Muldoon (above).

Upon arrival in the Sunshine State, the team gathered for Christmas dinner at its hotel, an event that included a visit from Santa Claus himself. Although Santa stopped by to provide gifts for the children of UW's coaches and staff, that didn't stop at least a couple players from jumping up on the big guy's lap (like Corey Clement, below).

Santa Claus has come to town

There is no chimney at the McClain Center, but that didn't stop Santa Claus from paying a surprise visit to the Wisconsin football team after the Badgers' practice session Monday morning. Santa brought candy canes, hats and, perhaps most importantly, a little levity as the team continued through the early stages of Finals Week.

Check out the full gallery of photos from Santa's visit on the Wisconsin Football Facebook page.

Several Badgers lost their hair on Thursday in the hope of helping gain awareness for the patients battling childhood cancer at the American Family Children's Hospital.

Eight members of the UW football team put their hair in the hands of patients from the children's hospital, losing their locks in the name of advancing a cure for cancer.

In just over an hour's time, LB Ethan Armstrong, WR Lance Baretz, OL Kyle Costigan, WR Connor Cummins, OL Ryan Groy, WR Chase Hammond, LB Conor O'Neill and TE Jacob Pedersen all walked out of the locker room with new close-cropped cuts.

Here's a look at how the event -- and the hair -- went down:
