Rose Bowl coaches hold final pregame news conference

Los Angeles, CA (AP)-- Friday morning both TCU coach Gary Patterson and Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema spoke to the media and posed together with the Rose Bowl trophy.

Both coaches spoke of how it felt to have the game one day away and both were surprisingly loose given what was ahead.

Bielema was a bit emotional at when point when asked about JJ Watt and possibly losing him to the NFL draft.

"JJ is just the way he is all the time. I hope he comes back next year. At the pier when the crowd was chanting 'One more year' I tried to point out to him that his mom was doing it too."

Bielema says he has been told if Watt does return for his senior year he'll be a first round pick in the draft.
