Wisconsin Loses Rose Bowl----For THIRD Straight Year

Wisconsin lost again, and it's now 1-9 for their last ten Rose Bowls. When I was a kid back in the fifties and sported a Wisconsin helmet, the Badgers would lose the Rose Bowl while Michigan & OSU & even Minnesota would win---or so I remember. I know the Badgers have the WORST Rose Bowl record of any team.
Stanford averaged 8.2 yards per play on first down in its Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin. It was the Cardinal's second-highest average in a game this season. They averaged 8.5 yards per play on first down in their win at Arizona. Stanford was unstoppable on first down in the first quarter, in which it averaged 17.1 yards per play, including its only two touchdowns. --Stanford's 8.2 yards per play on first down was the most allowed by Wisconsin in a game since it gave up 11.5 in last season's Rose Bowl loss to Oregon. The Badgers entered the Rose Bowl allowing 4.4 yards per play on first down, tied for the seventh-lowest average in FBS this season. [+] This is Stanford's sixth Rose Bowl victory. Only USC and Washington have more among Pac-12 schools. [-]

Montee Ball scored his 83rd TD and ran 100 yards. A guy named Hammond dropped a ball that would have been a first down and the Badgers lost their last chance to win. Same old Same-o!

Here's a list of Wisconsin Rose Bowl and other bowl games from the days of Alan Ameche.
