Badgers football: Quick hits from Wisconsin’s 34-24 Orange Bowl victory over Miami
Alex Hornibrook: The UW sophomore quarterback was fantastic, completing 23 of 34 passes for 258 yards and four touchdowns.
Andrew Van Ginkel: The interception by the UW junior outside linebacker on the first play of the second quarter, with Miami leading 14-3, flipped the momentum the Badgers’ way.
Officiating crew: There were plenty of blatant missed calls both ways. It’s also inexplicable how Hurricanes coach Mark Richt wasn’t ejected after making contact with an official late in the first half.

3 – touchdown receptions for UW freshman wide receiver Danny Davis. He came into the game with two touchdowns on the season.
