ORLANDO, Fla. (WIS) USC cornerback Victor Hampton enjoyed the sights and sounds of Walt Disney World Friday.

"The environment is great," Hampton told gamecocksonline.com. "The rides are great."

Friday was the first full day the Gamecocks were in Orlando and after practice, the players had the opportunity to visit the happiest place on Earth.

"I'm learning a lot about Disney and the characters," Hampton said. "I'm just taking it all in and it's a great site."    

Between rides, Hampton met with fans and posed for pictures.

On Saturday, the team will head to Universal Studios.

The No. 8 Gamecocks (10-2, 6-2 SEC) and No. 19 Wisconsin Badgers (9-3, 6-2 Big Ten) will meet at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium on Jan. 1 for the Capital One Bowl.
