USC has accepted a bid to the Holiday Bowl to play Wisconsin on Dec. 30 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and be televised on ESPN.
“We are thrilled to be able to go back to the Holiday Bowl and play an outstanding Big Ten team like Wisconsin. All of us at USC had such a wonderful experience last year in San Diego and we thank the Holiday Bowl committee for inviting us back,” USC head coach Clay Helton said.
“We will bring a motivated Trojan team that is anxious to finish the 2015 season on a high note, and they especially want to do so for our seniors and our fans. We know we’ll have a challenging opponent in Wisconsin, a team USC last played nearly 50 years ago. The Badgers have an unbelievable defense, leading the nation in points allowed and ranking third in total defense, so we will have to be on our game.
“Last year, we had an overwhelming turnout of Trojan fans at the Holiday Bowl and they were a key factor in our victory, and we expect a similar turnout this year. It’s a chance for our fans to spend the week after Christmas with us in the great city of San Diego, participate in all the fun activities the bowl puts on, and cap it off by watching their Trojans play in what should be a very exciting game,” Helton said.
