Rose Bowl will be Badgers school record ninth straight bowl game

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin has had an unprecedented run of postseason success. Now the fourth-ranked Badgers get to play in the Big Ten's marquee game against undefeated No. 3 TCU in the Rose Bowl.

Wisconsin (11-1) will play in a program-record ninth straight bowl game on Jan. 1 and get to face the only perfect team that isn't in the BCS title game.

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says the three losses last season helped propel the Badgers through a loss at Michigan State in the opening game of Big Ten play. Since then, the Badgers have won seven straight to make their seventh Rose Bowl appearance in school history.
