Before the game, we were tailgating. While everyone else was drinking I was playing football with John, my dad, and Zachary. When all of them stopped playing, a man came up to us. He said his sons wanted to know if they could play with me. He said he played football. We played for a little while. Everyone was looking at his throws and saw him limping so much that we figured that he was a quarterback. Then Mike went over. It turned out he was Tony Graziani!
At the end of the first quarter the score was 14-14. The score at halftime was 28-28. After the third quarter, the score was 38-35 and the Badgers were leading the Ducks. And, in the highest scoring Rose Bowl ever, the score was 45-38 and Oregon won! Three ways Wisconsin could've won were not fumbling in the same play as a huge gain, Russel Wilson spiking in with no time left, or the refs made the right call and said that there was 1 second left when he spiked it.
Here are some stats:
Wilson: 19/25 passing, 296 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception, 6 rushing attempts, 18 rushing yards, and 1 rushing touchdown
Ball: 32 rushing attempts, 164 rushing yards, and 1 touchdown
Toon: 104 receiving yards and 1 touchdown

Thomas: 17/23, 268 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 rushing yard, and 1 interception
