Rose Bowl score update, Wisconsin vs. Stanford: Cardinal lead at the half

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Stanford Cardinal lead the Wisconsin Badgers at halftime of the 2013 Rose Bowl.

The Stanford Cardinal lead the Wisconsin Badgers, 17-14, after one half of play in the 2013 Rose Bowl on Tuesday, but a late touchdown pass from Wisconsin's Curt Phillips to receiver Jordan Fredrick cut into the 10-point lead just before halftime.

Stanford got the scoring off on their first possession with a 16-yard touchdown run by Kelsey Young, and Stepfan Taylor scored from three yards out with 6:35 to play in the first quarter to give the Cardinal a 14-0 lead.

Each of the first two scoring drives by Stanford took less than four minutes, and it appeared to be the makings of a rout. But the Badgers fought back, riding running back Montee Ball for a touchdown with nine minutes to play in the first half.

Ball has 87 yards on 17 carries in the first half.

A 47-yard field goal by Stanford's Jordan Williamson answered the score with six minutes left in the second quarter, but Wisconsin went on a 10-play, 85 yard drive in just more than two minutes to bring the score to 17-14 with 19 seconds left before halftime.

Stanford's Kevin Hogan has 90 passing yards on 6-of-9 completions and Taylor has 44 rush yards on nine touches.
