Fans of solid tackling and hard-nosed defense might want to skip this year's Rose Bowl.

Fans of explosive offense and long touchdowns: This is your game.

In what could be the most entertaining BCS Bowl game this year, Big Ten champion Wisconsin will face off against Pac-12 champion Oregon in a Rose Bowl on Jan. 2nd. Oregon is led by the same two-headed attack of Darron Thomas and LaMichael James that took them to the brink of a BCS National Championship last season. Meanwhile, Wisconsin has been stellar this season under the leadership of quarterback Russell Wilson. The Badgers also have the Big Ten offensive player of the year in running back Montee Ball, who has scored an astounding 32 touchdowns on the ground this year. One of Oregon's two losses came at the hands of LSU in their first game this season, while Wisconsin is two hail mary passes away from being undefeated. Expect an exciting contest with the last team that has the ball ultimately coming out on top.
