Rose Bowl 2013 final score: Stanford football wins close again, beating Wisconsin 20-14

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Stanford Cardinal captured the 2013 Rose Bowl with a 20-14 victory over the Wisconsin Badgers.

The Stanford Cardinal edged out the Wisconsin Badgers in the 2013 Rose Bowl, winning by a final score of 20-14. Stanford won their eight game of the season by a touchdown or less, finishing their season at 12-2. Wisconsin fell to 8-5.

Stanford got started with two touchdowns on their first two drives to take a 14-0 lead. Two big throws helped set up each touchdown. A Drew Terrell wide receiver throw to Jamal-Rashad Patterson for 34 yards set up the first score, and a Kevin Hogan throw to Zach Ertz for 43 yards set up the second.

After Wisconsin got a Montee Ball 11 yard touchdown, Jordan Williamson kicked a 47 yard field goal to make it 17-7. Curt Phillips found Jordan Frederick for a four yard touchdown to cut the lead to 17-14 at halftime.

The third and fourth quarter were a defensive affair filled with punts. Then Stanford would mount a six minute drive that led to a second Williamson field goal to make it 20-14, and seal the game on the subsequent drive with a Usua Amanam interception.
