Wisconsin visits New York children's hospital prior to Pinstripe Bowl
The New Era Pinstripe Bowl between Wisconsin and Miami is set for a 5:15 p.m. start on Thursday, Dec. 27 at Yankee Stadium.
The game will be televised on ESPN. Both teams went 7-5 and the bowl game will be a rematch between the two teams, as last season, the Badgers and Hurricanes met in Miami’s backyard at the Orange Bowl.
Ahead of the Pinstripe Bowl this year, Wisconsin wanted to do something awesome away from the field. New York has plenty of opportunities for that, but the Badgers did something a little extra special.
They visited the pediatrics unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center:

This is great. Sure, football is fantastic, too.
But anytime a player can do good away from the game and bring smiles to children’s faces, what can be better?
