No Rose Bowl rematch

MADISON (WKOW) -- A proposed Rose Bowl rematch on September 3rd at Camp Randall Stadium has been scrapped by TCU athletics officials.

ESPN reports a third party approached Wisconsin and Texas Christian University about setting up a rematch of the 2011 Rose Bowl, which the Horned Frogs won 21-19.

According to the report, Badgers head coach Brett Bielema wanted to make the game, but TCU's athletic director was not interested in making the deal because it called for a one-time meeting, and would not produce a return game in Fort Worth, home of TCU.

Wisconsin is currently scheduled to play UNLV in its season opener on Sept. 3.
