The First Annual Bowl Preview, Part II

No long previews here, yet; I’ve been busy. If the mood strikes, they may yet get written.  

Outback Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Tennessee
Jan. 1, 11 a.m. ET, ESPN

Wisconsin has a stout defense and an underrated QB in Tyler Donovan. Tennessee is, as usual, one of the most inconsistent teams in the country, having, on the pro side, handed Georgia a beatdown earlier this year, handcuffed Darren McFadden and hung with LSU for three quarters, and getting stomped by Cal and Florida, and failing to put away weaker SEC teams like Vanderbilt and Kentucky. With the mistake-prone Erik Ainge behind center, it seems unlikely the Vols can beat a sound Badgers team unless he avoids errors.
