Over the next month, BTN will profile 18 different classic games, ranging from 2007-2014.

Tonight's game is the 2009 Champs Sports Bowl, which featured No. 20 Wisconsin vs. Miami (FL). It will air at 8 p.m. ET Thursday on BTN/BTN2Go.

The Badgers' backfield was simply dominant in this game. John Clay and co. racked up a total of 170 yards on the ground, while holding Miami to just 61 rushing yards. Clay led the way with 121 yards and two rushing touchdowns in the 20-14 win over the Hurricanes.

Here is a breakdown of the 2009 Champs Sports Bowl, highlighting the top moment, stat line and individual player.

Top moment: With Wisconsin holding a 17-7 lead midway throughout the fourth quarter, the Hurricanes were driving toward mid-field. That's when O'Brien Schofield sacked Miami QB Jacory Harris and forced a fumble, which J.J. Watt recovered to help seal the victory.

Top stat line: The Badgers racked up an eye-popping 430 yards of offense, while holding Miami to just 249, including a measly 61 yards on the ground. The Badgers' run defense was so good, not a single Miami player topped the 30-yard rushing mark.

Top stat line: Wisconsin running back John Clay ran all over the Hurricanes, carrying 22 times for a game-high 122 yards and two touchdowns in the win.
