Does Wisconsin Have a Shot Against Stanford in the Rose Bowl?

Adam Kramer@kegsneggsNational College Football Lead WriterDecember 15, 2012

Despite entering the game with five losses and without its head coach, Wisconsin heads to California once again for the Rose Bowl.

Bret Bielema is off to Arkansas, and former Badger head coach Barry Alvarez is stepping in to take over head coaching responsibilities for one game. He's getting paid a nice chunk of coin to do so, I might add.

And while it's a fascinating reunion of sorts, he won't be greeted with open arms. The Cardinal have been superb, especially in the second half of the season once they found their quarterback, and they have a ton of momentum heading into the game.

They also have a pretty good defense.

Is this the mismatch that many believe it will be, or can the Big Ten steal the Granddaddy of Them All?
