CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The Miami Hurricanes are heading to the Pinstripe Bowl.

Miami will play Wisconsin at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 27.

The game kicks off at 5:15 p.m. on ESPN.

Miami (7-5) finished the regular season on a two-game winning streak after losing four in a row.

The Hurricanes will get a chance at payback after losing to the Badgers 34-24 in last year's Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium.

"They had a terrific season and I know we have a tremendous challenge ahead of us," Miami head coach Mark Richt said of his team's opponent.  "We can't wait to return to the practice field and start preparing for this game."

Wisconsin (7-5) began the season ranked No. 4 but fell out of the top 25 after blowout losses at Michigan and Northwestern in October. The Badgers stumbled to a 2-3 record in November and needed three overtimes to beat Purdue.

The Hurricanes are 26-12 in three seasons under Richt and 1-1 in bowl games, including a 31-14 victory over West Virginia in the 2016 Russell Athletic Bowl.

Wisconsin is 3-2 all-time against the Hurricanes.
