PASADENA, California -- The Wisconsin Badgers lose 27-28 against the Oregon Ducks in the Rose Bowl. This is the 4th consecutive Rose Bowl loss for the Badgers over the last 10 years.

Turnovers were a huge factor in this game as the Badgers turned the ball over 4 times. Wisconsin had 3 fumbles and Jack Coan threw an interception as well. 

The Badgers had more passing and rushing yards than the Ducks, but the Ducks ability to force turnovers was the key to the game.

Oregon quarterback Justin Herbet didn't find the endzone through the air but ran for 3 touchdowns against the Badger defense today.

Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor eclipsed 2,000 rushing yards on the season with his 94-yards today.

Jack Coan -  23/35, 186 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
