ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - For South Carolina and Wisconsin, it would be understandable if the Capital One Bowl had somewhat of a Redemption Bowl feel to it.

Both the No. 8 Gamecocks (10-2) and No. 19 Badgers (9-3) enter the New Year's Day matchup having had shots at reaching a BCS bowl before being untimely losses.

Still, there's no lack of motivation for either squad.

Wisconsin is playing in its first bowl under new coach Gary Andersen and is trying to end a three-game bowl losing streak.

South Carolina has won its last two bowl appearances, including a victory in the 2012 Capital One.

The game also could be the last for Gamecocks junior defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who is expected to a high selection in this spring's NFL draft.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
