PASADENA, CA (AP)–Paul Chryst succinctly summed up why his Wisconsin squad lost Wednesday’s 106th Rose Bowl to Oregon despite running 22 more plays and dominating time of possession.
The Badgers coach says his team was unable to overcome themselves after four turnovers and untimely penalties contributed to a 28-27 defeat. Three fumbles and an interception resulted in 21 Oregon points, while nine penalties stalled a couple drives.
Running back Jonathan Taylor reached 2,000 rushing yards for the second straight season, but did not announce if he will forgo his senior season for the NFL draft.
