Rose Bowl 2012 Score Update: Russell Wilson Leads Badgers Down The Field, Throws Go-Ahead TD Pass

More scoring! The Wisconsin Badgers were stalled on their last drive and forced to kick a field goal, but they lead the 2012 Rose Bowl once again by a score of 38-35, thanks to a brilliantly engineered drive by Russell Wilson. He capped it off with a great touchdown pass to Nick Toon, and did a lot of work with both his arm and his legs to march the Badgers down the field for the score.

Wilson converted two massive third downs on the drive, scrambling to run for one and picking up another with a pass to Montee Ball. The last play was the most impressive of all, as he hit Toon with a back shoulder throw in a spot where the defense had no play on the ball. Toon made the catch, and the Badgers lead by three with 4"44 remaining in the third quarter.
