ORLANDO, Fla. The University of South Carolina football team hit the practice field Saturday, preparing for Wednesday's Capital One Bowl matchup with the Wisconsin Badgers.

"(Wisconsin) is a great football team," said offensive line coach Shawn Elliott."They've got a great defense. They play a great scheme. They're so sound and very intelligent. They don't make a lot of mental mistakes. We're going to have to run the football and do it well. And then find out and see what they are giving us. We'll find out early in the ballgame and see what we can do with it and work from there."

Elliott said he knows the importance of winning the bowl game.

"You live with it until the first game of next year," Elliott said. "You've got to live with your last game. That's the good and the bad thing about bowl games. (A win) gives you positive momentum going into the offseason. It's very important to be successful. I think everyone wants to be remembered for winning their last game."

Elliott said he is still undecided on who will start at center. He is choosing from between a pair of redshirt freshmen in Cody Waldrop and Clayton Stadnik.

"I'm going to leave it right up until the game," said Elliott.

"I want to go out with a win," said junior wide receiver Bruce Ellington. "I'm going to do the same thing I've been doing – go out there and play hard, play together and try to get the ‘W'."

Ellington did not envision playing both sports when he left high school.

"I came (to South Carolina) to play basketball," Ellington said. "I just ended up playing football and it's going good. I'm just happy being out here and making plays."

Ellington said he has not made any decisions about his future.

The Gamecocks will spend Sunday morning with a Day for Kids Event at DisneyQuest before returning to the practice fields at 1 p.m.
