Badgers, Ducks invade Disneyland for Rose Bowl


ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Wisconsin and Oregon both returned to the Rose Bowl this week determined to succeed on the fabled field after losing in their last trips.

But first, they had to conquer the Matterhorn and some whirling teacups.

The No. 6 Ducks (11-2) and the ninth-ranked Badgers (11-2) descended on Disneyland on Tuesday for the traditional start to Rose Bowl week festivities. Both teams basked in the warm sun on a picture-perfect Orange County day, although Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema assured fans the weather was exactly the same back in Madison.

With Bielema wearing flip-flops and Oregon's Chip Kelly in plaid shorts, both coaches spoke of a mutual respect between two very different teams.

Wisconsin lost last season's Rose Bowl to TCU, while Oregon lost two years ago to Ohio State.
