Wisconsin took some time out of its bowl preparation Sunday to check out the Green Bay Packers-Chicago Bears game, which was a duel for a playoff spot - winner went on to the postseason, the loser went home.
So, it was no surprise that most of the Wisconsin players were glued to the television as the Packers trailed 28-27 with less than a minutes remaining.
That was, however, until Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers found a wide-open Randall Cobb open 48 yards down the field for the game-winning score.
And the Wisconsin players went crazy.
Well, everyone except for redshirt freshman running back Vonte Jackson, who is sad panda while wearing the jersey of Bears’ running back Matt Forte.
Jackson's sad reaction made him an Internet sensation on Sunday night and his teammates later took to Twitter to tease him for it.
Lmao ESPN showed our video haha and mentioned how salty @Vonte_Jackson was lmao I'm rolling— Melvin Gordon (@Melvingordon25) December 30, 2013
Can't believe I'm hanging out with internet sensation @Vonte_Jackson!— KingArthur (@arthur_goldberg) December 30, 2013
Since I have no dog in this fight, I would have loved to see the video of Jackson as the lone celebrator while the rest of his team looked at him in disgust.
Not sure that would have topped the player that jumps into the other player's arms, which is absolutely classic. It's almost like they were getting black uniforms for the first time.
