On Thursday night, the Wisconsin Badgers took on the Miami Hurricanes for the second-consecutive time in the postseason after the two programs met in the Orange Bowl last year. This game seems to be going the same way as last year's win for the Badgers.

Wisconsin jumped out to an early 14-0 lead thanks to an interception from Miami quarterback Malik Rosier. The Badgers held the two-score lead just five minutes into the contest, but it's been all defense since.

The Hurricanes haven't been able to take advantage of a solid defensive showing as Rosier has thrown three interceptions on the night.

The latest pick was his last. Head coach Mark Richt decided to make a change at the quarterback position.

N'kosi Perry is taking over under center.

Perry likely would have made an appearance in the game sooner, had he not posted a NSFW video to his Snapchat account.

Wisconsin holds a 21-3 lead late in the third quarter.
