Wisconsin players are making the most of their time in South Florida.

Wisconsin football players catch 450-pound shark days before Orange Bowl

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.
