Rose Bowl 2012 Score Updates: Russell Wilson Touchdown, Like Always

The Wisconsin Badgers opened the 2012 Rose Bowl in very Wisconsin Badgers fashion, with Russell Wilson bombing deep to Jared Abbrederis, a 38-yard score. It's the 32nd passing touchdown of the year for Wilson, famed N.C. State Wolfpack transfer. Wiscy leads, 7-0, after the three-minute, 77-yard drive.

The Oregon Ducks are known for scoring in three minutes or so, so we could be well on our way to a high-scoring Rose Bowl. Three Wilson passes and four Montee Ball runs displayed Wisconsin's versatility, with Ball breaking a 10-yard run and also snaring a seven-yard catch.

The Pasadena crowd appears to be mostly red and white, and I have no idea what color Oregon's helmets are supposed or be, exactly.
