From "Bucky's 5th Quarter breaks down the Holiday Bowl matchup":

"USC has a great chance to stop the run, as it's expected the Badgers are to start four redshirt freshman for the second consecutive game. This hasn't been your stereotypical Wisconsin offense that displays a physical, punishing running game in 2015. They've averaged only 148.1 yards per game on the ground, though it appeared the line started to gel with 257 yards, 199 in the first half, against Minnesota on Nov. 29.

Stave and the passing game has had to carry Wisconsin in most of the games this season. He has Chryst's confidence since the spring, when he named the former walk-on as the starter to begin those practices. He's shown progression from last year, anticipating where receivers will be and showing the confidence to put the ball where it needs to be. He's completed over 60 percent of his passes and has averaged over 200 yards per game through the air, a stark difference between this season and a rough 2014 campaign."
