Heisman voters in 2007 will take a good look at Orlando on New Year's Day.
Arkansas' Darren McFadden is sure to lead many lists for next year's Heisman Trophy race after finishing as the runner-up this year.
But Wisconsin redshirt freshman P.J. Hill will be on preseason lists as well, especially if he conquers an SEC defense in a New Year's bowl game.
Only two years removed from high school, the pair combined for 3,091 yards and 29 touchdowns in 2006 - although their paths to stardom started out differently.
McFadden arrived in Fayetteville already a superstar after achieving five-star recruit status out of Little Rock (Ark.) Pulaski Oak Grove.
As a freshman, he was a Rivals.com Freshman All-American with 1,113 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns.
On the other hand, Hill arrived in Madison as a recruiting footnote as a fullback out of Brooklyn, N.Y. As McFadden ran over the SEC, Hill redshirted due to injury.
The running back matchup won't be the only top-notch meeting in the Capital One Bowl, which Wisconsin won last year with a 24-10 victory over Auburn.
