Wisconsin Vs. Oregon Halftime Score: Highest-Scoring Rose Bowl First Half Ever

If not for a pair of plays, the Wisconsin Badgers could be undefeated right now. If not for a pair of plays in the 2012 Rose Bowl, they'd be up by quite a bit on the Oregon Ducks, too, so there's your transition. De'Anthony Thomas' 91-yard scoot, the longest in Rose Bowl history, and a 54-yard catch by Kenjon Barner nullified Wisconsin's mighty time of possession edge, and it's 28-28 at the break.

Darron Thomas and Russell Wilson: both nine-of-12, both for right around 150 yards heading into Wiscy's final-seconds drive. Each has a pair of touchdowns to his credit. Oregon's Thomas and LaMichael James have led a 180-yard rushing game, with Wisconsin defender (!) Louis Nzegwu's fumble return touchdown proving the equalizer so far.

Hey, I bet there are gonna be more points!
