Stanford 20, Wisconsin 14 -- Final
One year after losing one of the best quarterbacks in program history, the No. 6 Stanford Cardinal won the 2013 Rose Bowl, defeating the unranked Wisconsin Badgers 20-14.
Kevin Hogan completed 12 of 19 passes for 123 yards and the Cardinal rushed for 187 yards against the Badgers on the way to their first Rose Bowl victory since 1972.
Wisconsin battled under replacement-coach Barry Alvarez. The Badgers found themselves buried under a 14-0 first quarter deficit, but they clawed their way back into the game behind a stingy defense and the strong running of Montee Ball.
Wisconsin scored two touchdowns in the second quarter, making it a 17-14 game going into halftime. That's as close as it would get, though, as the Cardinal defense stiffened while pitching a second half shutout.
It was a bitter defeat for the Wisconsin, who lost their third consecutive Rose Bowl just weeks after former head coach Bret Bielema ditched the Badgers for Arkansas.
