PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - The way Wisconsin's season played out, a third consecutive Rose Bowl loss fit right in.
The unranked Badgers were beaten 20-14 by No. 8 Stanford on Tuesday, another thorn in a season full of them. Three overtime losses. Coach Bret Bielema quitting to go to Arkansas. Star running back Montee Ball attacked and left with a concussion in August.
Even the one-game return of Barry Alvarez, who won three Rose Bowls while reviving Wisconsin's program, couldn't turn things around.
New coach Gary Andersen got a close-up view of what needs fixing from his position on the sideline.
The Badgers (8-6) failed to avenge tight losses the last two years in Pasadena.
This time, they got shut out in the second half as the first five-loss team to reach the Rose Bowl.
