In an open letter to Wisconsin fans tweeted by Journal Sentinel reporter Jeff Potrykus, Cotton Bowl president and CEO Rick Baker congratulated the Badgers on their victory and thanked fans for attending the game in North Texas.
“You should take pride in the student-athletes, Coach Paul Chryst and Athletic Director Barry Alvarez,” he wrote. “These gentlemen represented Wisconsin and the Big Ten Conference in a first-class manner.”
