You can’t do this at every bowl destination. Wisconsin’s football team landed in Miami for the Orange Bowl earlier in the week, and between practices and team outings, a few teammates had the chance to schedule some deep-sea fishing.
Members of Wisconsin’s football team went fishing somewhere near Miami this week and caught a 450-pound hammerhead shark. The Badgers’ Twitter account posted a photo of the impressive catch on Wednesday.

The Badgers’ Orange Bowl gift bag includes a PlayStation 4, wireless headphones, a 39-inch television and more, but none of the gadgets compare to a huge hammerhead. This is really making the most of the trip.
Wisconsin squares off with Miami on Saturday night. The Badgers are a 4.5-point favorite in a contest that is basically a road game. They’ll hope their players fare as well on the field as they did on the water.
