The fans are waiting for this game, and excited to see what the Razorbacks coach will do. The fans love Bobby Petrino as he took the team to a BCS game in just three seasons. In addition to this, the fans are waiting to see how he will handle such an intense match. Patrino is betting on the maturity of Mallett and that he hopes that he will be one of the main reasons of Arkansas winning the bowl game.

Wisconsin is the 4th ranked team in the BCS and they are one of the key players in this championship.
