Rose Bowl 2012 Score: Wisconsin And Oregon Tied At 14 After 1st Quarter

Wisconsin got the scoring started with a 38-yard play-action pass from Russell Wilson to Jared Abbrederis, and it took less than two-and-a-half minutes for the Ducks to drive down the field and answer with a short touchdown run by LaMichael James.

Wilson gave the Badgers a 14-7 lead with this run:

Wilson, the former Rockies prospect, finished the quarter 4-6 for 80 yards and a score through the air.

Oregon tied the score on a Rose Bowl-record 91 yard touchdown run by De'Anthony Thomas late in the quarter. The two teams already have combined for over 350 yards.
