2011 Rose Bowl, TCU Vs. Wisconsin: Defense Cheerfully Eschewed

Neither of these well-regarded defenses in the 2011 Rose Bowl appears particularly inclined to play defense at this juncture. Jeremy Kerley returns the Badgers' post-score kickoff 35 yards, and the Horned Frogs set up at their own 43 with just over three minutes remaining in the first quarter. A first-down rush by Ed Wesley goes for one useless yard, but on 2nd-and-9 Andy Dalton hits Josh Boyce across the left hash for a 44-yard gain. Dalton runs for eight more yards on two touches himself, and on 3rd-and-2 scrambles left for a four-yard touchdown. With 1:18 remaining in the first quarter, the Horned Frogs regain the lead, 14-10. David Gilreath runs TCU's kickoff back 15 yards; Montee Ball gains five more on first down for the Badgers, and that'll take us to the end of the first quarter in Pasadena.
