Stanford holds off Wisconsin 20-14 in Rose Bowl
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) – Stepfan Taylor rushed for 89 yards and an early touchdown, and Number 8 Stanford’s dominant defense shut out Wisconsin in the second half of a 20-14 victory in the 99th Rose Bowl Tuesday night. Usua Amanam made the decisive interception near midfield with 2:30 to play as the Pac-12 champion Cardinal (12-2) won their first Rose Bowl since 1972. Stanford didn’t score many style points, but the Big Ten champion Badgers (8-6) couldn’t score many points at all while losing the Granddaddy of Them All in heartbreaking fashion for the third consecutive season. Wisconsin still stayed in position for an upset in the one-game return of Hall of Fame coach Barry Alvarez. Montee Ball rushed for 100 yards and his FBS-record 83rd touchdown for the Badgers, who managed 82 yards after halftime.
