    Yes, Texas is down right now, but a random football fan is going to be more interested in watching Texas than Wisconsin.

    Re: Bama vs. Wisconsin in the 2015 Cowboys Classic

    It's a good OoC game and will bolster the SoS and is a match-up against a respected major conference opponent. Therefore, it's a good game for the schedule on par with a UCLA, Clemson, or Oklahoma St. Wisconsin is not a "marquee" team like Michigan or USC or FSU or Texas, but year in and year out Wisconsin fields good teams that are physical and often ranked, sometimes highly, and they usually present a tough challenge for anyone on their schedule. Looking forward to it, myself.

    Bama vs. Wisconsin in the 2015 Cowboys Classic

    Would have preferred Nebraska over Wisconsin. But I really wish it would have been Oregon or Southern Cal. Texas would have been good too.

    All just names, imo.

    USC isn't going to be good the next few years, Oregon will be losing Kelly more than likely so who knows, Texas is a big mess, and Nebraska is very underwhelming... Wisconsin, at least, is a three time defending Big Ten champ...

    The naysayers will be singing a different tune if UW goes 12-1 next year and wins the Rose Bowl.

    When you are the top program in the nation you havea lot to lose playing anyone. I love this matchup. Beats playing SanJose St..

    I don't get the lukewarm response to this game. Whatever were the circumstances, Wisconsin won three straight conference titles and that is hard to do. They've been won of the 3 or 4 best programs in their conference for over a decade.

    Bama vs. Wisconsin in the 2015 Cowboys Classic

    I in fact, love it. I've always wanted to play them because they were so dominant in the run game and scored a lot of points with it. Ron Dayne now
    Montee Ball I would for our defense to stop someone of that caliber. They have a new coach now, so who knows, but I love it.

    In scheduling, Bama will reach the point of diminishing returns with any team that is scheduled as long as Sabans teams continue to be the dominate like they have thus far. RTR

    I love this game ! Work took me to Wisconsin, and I met tons of great folks and fans. They're not scared of a party, and their teams have been built on a stout run game and defense. Their band is absolutely one of the best you'll ever see.

    for me, it's a bit of the 'notre dame disease', honestly. They get accolades for the names on their schedule, whether those teams are actually good or not.

    'They played usc, michigan, navy.....etc....what a hard schedule! Look at the names they played'

    For me, it's kinda the same thing. Probably will be a good game, but I can just imagine the rest of the country yawning at the matchup. I may be wrong...
