TE Kendricks helps lead Badgers to Rose Bowl

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Lance Kendricks remembers being 11 years old sitting in his mom's kitchen in Milwaukee mesmerized at the images on the small television.

Kendricks, now a senior tight end, watched Ron Dayne run through Stanford on the way to 200 yards rushing on Jan. 1, 2000, the second of back-to-back Rose Bowl victories for the Badgers.

No. 4 Wisconsin (11-1) is finally in the Rose Bowl again, facing undefeated TCU (12-0).

The third-ranked Horned Frogs have the nation's best run defense, and Kendricks recognizes it's not just the Badgers' vaunted offensive line that must block for the Badgers' talented backs.
