BEER OF THE GAME:

I know, I know: I already used Miller High Life for the Wisconsin game, and that didn't work out to well. But it's New Year's Day, people, and if you're not going to drink the Champagne of Beers on New Year's Day, I'm afraid we can't be friends anymore. Cheers.

Enjoy the game, and bring me home a winner.
