Dienhart: Badgers move up in bowl projections

Dienhart: Badgers move up in bowl projections

No big shakeups in my weekly bowl projections. The biggest is Wisconsin leaping past Michigan into the Capital One bowl, clashing with LSU. Of course, these schools will meet in season-opening games in 2014 (at Houston’s Reliant Stadium) and 2016 (at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field). Minnesota also has moved up to the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, where I have it playing Baylor.
