One wait is over. Now comes 26 more days of anticipation.
Despite winning a share of its first Big Ten title since 1999 last Saturday, the Wisconsin football team had to wait for the unveiling of the final BCS standings to make its appearance in the Rose Bowl official. UW will take on No. 3 TCU.
The trip was never really in doubt after the win over Northwestern, which made it an awkward week as everyone waited for the official announcement last night.
Or almost everyone, as it is.
“I just told people we were going anyways,” senior left guard John Moffitt said.
Head coach Bret Bielema wasn’t quite as forward about the wait.
“Obviously very excited. Been anticipating this announcement, obviously because of where we stood and nothing really changed in front of us, so [it’s] a tremendous opportunity,” he said.
This marks the Badgers’ first trip to Pasadena since winning the 2000 Rose Bowl, 17-9 over Stanford.
Lets all pray to the Football Gods for a Badger Victory. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
