IU didn't beat a team as good as Wisconsin. Their best win was Nebraska, they also beat Purdue in 2 OTs, Ball State, Maryland, Eastern Illinois, Rutgers, UConn and Northwestern.
They also didn't have any bad losses. We did. EMU, Northwestern, and arguably Nebraska.

Matter of opinion if you're talking about what's more important--good wins or bad losses. Wisconsin and MSU are both better wins than any IU had. But you're right those three are worse than any they had.

In the end I'd have rather had their season, but I think in terms of quality of team/record, it's very close (I'd still give them an edge)

Already knew the bowl but didn’t know the opponent. This is exactly the game I wanted. Going to be a fantastic matchup.
It’s really the best matchup we could have hoped for. Washington State would have been a disaster.

I wouldn’t say disaster, that gives that team more credit than they’ve earned but your general point is correct. Mike can put up points a lot faster than we can.

I just love the matchup between two strong defensive teams. I’m legitimately excited.

Sweet! Just might be making the trip for this one. Plenty of friends up in the Bay area I can hang with, most Illini alums.

Will the university offer a package that includes tickets air fare etc? If not what would be the most efficient way to for a family of 5 to attend. I hate scheduling trips and making itineraries.

Now we know the date for the bowl game. When do the practices begin officially. Should be nice weather. Remember the last time we played Cal. Let’s win this time.

I used to travel to Santa Clara quite a bit for work and we always flew in SFO. Pretty easy drive and many more flight options

Couldn’t ask for a better power 5 bowl matchup than Cal. Based on the little bit I’ve seen from Cal they’re slow on defense sideline to sideline, and can be stale on offense. This “should” be a spring board game into next season, but then again I never know what to expect from our team
