Wisconsin's Third Straight Rose Bowl Comes Up All Thorns

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The way Wisconsin's season played out, a third consecutive Rose Bowl loss fit right in. The unranked Badgers were beaten 20-14 by No. 8 Stanford on Tuesday, another thorn in a season full of them.

Three overtime losses. Coach Bret Bielema quitting to go to Arkansas. Star running back Montee Ball attacked and left with a concussion in August. Even the one-game return of Barry Alvarez, who won three Rose Bowls while reviving Wisconsin's program, couldn't turn things around.

New coach Gary Andersen got a close-up view of what needs fixing from his position on the sideline.

The Badgers (8-6) failed to avenge tight losses the last two years in Pasadena. This time, they got shut out in the second half as the first five-loss team to reach the Rose Bowl.
