Wisconsin ran its way to a Rose Bowl birth and a third straight Big Ten conference championship. Wisconsin will be the first 5 loss team to play in the Rose Bowl and the first team to play in three consecutive Rose Bowls since Michigan did it in the late 1970′s
Wisconsin’s RB’s ran up and down the football as if there was Nebraska did not have their defense on the field. Montee Ball ran for 202 yards/3 TDs, Melvin Gordon 216 yards/1 TD and James White 109 yards/ 4 TDs.
This was the first time in school history that Wisconsin had 2, 200 yard rushers in the same game. Wisconsin’s defense was also sound, sacking Taylor Martinez 3 times and causing 2 turnovers one returned for a TD.
