Let's go Bucky! No. 11 Wisconsin takes on No. 7 Oregon in 106th Rose Bowl

PASADENA, Calif. (AP/CBS 58) -- Wisconsin football fans are looking forward to the No. 11 Badgers taking on the No. 7 Oregon Ducks in the 106 edition of the Rose Bowl Wednesday, Jan. 1. 

This matchup is mostly for bragging rights in the venerable game's traditional Big Ten/Pac-12 rivalry after both the Ducks and the Badgers missed out on the College Football Playoff.
