Rose Bowl 2012 Score Update: De'Anthony Thomas Goes 91 Yards To Tie Game

When the Wisconsin Badgers forced the Oregon Ducks to punt for the first time in the 2012 Rose Bowl while up 14-7, it appeared they had taken an advantage in the game. They went down the field and were stopped on their last drive, but pinned the Ducks inside their own 10-yard line, a positive gain of field position. That was wiped out by De'Anthony Thomas in one play, as he ripped off an incredible 91-yard touchdown run to tie the score up at 14-14 with the last play of the first quarter.

It's been a wild opening 15 minutes in Pasadena, but Thomas truly stole the show with his run. Taking a handoff in the backfield, he showed off his world-class speed, blowing by the entire Wisconsin defense virtually untouched. We sincerely hope that you bet the over. Here's the video of Thomas' TD.

And as a bonus, Oregon's mascot was exceedingly happy about developments.
