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.
