Wisconsin won the 2017 Orange Bowl over Miami on Saturday night. Winning a bowl game is probably pretty fun, so players have all sorts of celebrations. Here’s one such method specific to the Orange Bowl:

That’s freshman Wisconsin DE Keldric Preston diggning right in, peel and all, demonstrating one way to eat an orange. It’s not the method I’d personally recommend, because orange peels don’t taste very good. But anything probably tastes good after an Orange Bowl win in your freshman year of college. I’d also reckon peeling an orange with football gloves on is a difficult task, so why not skip that step altogether?
Wisconsin took a 24-14 lead in the second quarter and held off a late Miami surge to secure its first-ever 13-win season. The Badgers missed their chance at the College Football Playoff with a Big Ten Championship Game loss to Ohio State, but it’s still been a banner year in many ways for Wisconsin. RB Jonathan Taylor was a Heisman Trophy candidate for much of the season, and it fielded a customarily excellent Wisconsin defense and offensive line. Taylor comes back next year along with QB Alex Hornibrook, who was 23 of 24 for 258 yards against Miami, and some talented young receivers.
