The No. 6 BCS-ranked Stanford Cardinals, champions of the Pac-12 Conference, have earned berths to play in the 99th Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO at 1:30 p.m. PT (5:30 p.m. ET) on Tuesday, January 1, 2013, at the Rose Bowl Stadium.
“The Tournament of Roses is honored to host Stanford University to play in The Granddaddy of Them All®,” Tournament of Roses President Sally Bixby said. “As home of the Big Ten and Pac-12 Conference champions, we are proud of our long standing partnership and look forward to a terrific match-up.”
Stanford closed out the regular season at 11-2, (8-1 in conference) and defeated the UCLA Bruins in the Pac-12 Football Championship Game to earn the Pac-12 BCS automatic qualifier. The Cardinal is making its third consecutive BCS bowl appearance in as many years and its 13th appearance all-time in the Rose Bowl Game. Head coach David Shaw became the fifth coach in conference history to win back-to-back Pac-12 Coach of the Year honors. Stanford is 5-6-1 in its Rose Bowl Game appearances with its last coming in 2000.
January 1 will mark the sixth meeting all-time between the Badgers and Cardinal and second Rose Bowl Game match-up; the last contest took place in Pasadena for the 2000 Rose Bowl Game in which Wisconsin went on to win, 17-9.
