Texas Christian University comes into the game undefeated, while Wisconsin is 11-1. TCU feels it has something to prove since it fell just short of the BCS title game, despite winning every time out. Facing the Badger offense will be a Horned Frog defense which allowed just 11 points per game, only 126 passing yards and just 215 total yards. Each of those figures was best in the country. TCU also finished third in the nation by allowing just 89 yards rushing each time out.

That speedy defense faces its toughest test of the season in a Wisconsin team that scored 43.3 points per game, fourth in the nation.
