TCU Wins for "Little Guys"

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and

ran for a score, linebacker Tank Carder swatted down a 2-point

conversion pass attempt with 2 minutes to play, and No. 3 TCU

completed a perfect season with its first Rose Bowl victory, 21-19

over fourth-ranked Wisconsin on Saturday.

Bart Johnson caught an early TD pass and recovered a late onside

kick for the Mountain West champion Horned Frogs (13-0), who

followed up their second straight unbeaten regular season by

busting the BCS in dramatic fashion.

Dalton passed for 219 yards for TCU, which won't win the

national title after Auburn and Oregon meet in the BCS championship

game in nine days.

These ferocious Frogs still proved they can play with anybody on

college football's biggest stages.

Montee Ball rushed for 132 yards and a late score for the Big

Ten co-champion Badgers (11-2), whose loss capped a nightmare New

Year's Day for their conference.
