On New Year’s Day, No. 5 Stanford (11-2) will take the field for the last time this season against the No. 6 University of Iowa (12-1) in Pasadena, California for what will be the Cardinal’s 15th Rose Bowl berth.
It’s been a while since the Cardinal has come out on top in the Granddaddy of Them All—41 years to be exact. Tomorrow on New Year’s Day, No. 6 Stanford (11-2, 8-1 Pac-12) finally has the chance to end that drought as it squares off against Wisconsin (8-5, 4-4 Big Ten) at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
Five stats that have defined the Wisconsin football season, and could very well define the upcoming Rose Bowl.
