Of course Russell Wilson went on to play at Wisconsin in his extra year of eligibility and led Wisconsin to the Rose Bowl. Now, Russell Wilson is one of the best QBs in the NFL and plays for my Seattle Seahawks. However, his burst on the national scene began during this game against Miami for NC State on his 20th birthday.
