Ducks, Badgers Approach Pomp of Rose Bowl in Different Ways
Oregon and Wisconsin are taking contrasting approaches to everything that comes before the Rose Bowl. Ducks coach Mario Cristobal is treating this week as a business trip, making sure players got a workout in after arriving in Los Angeles on Christmas Day. Badgers coach Paul Chryst trusts his players can maintain balance between enjoying the activities before the game, including a visit to Disneyland on Thursday and the annual Beef Bowl dinner at Lawry’s The Prime Rib, and preparing for “The Granddaddy of Them All.” Despite the divergent approaches, both No. 7 Oregon and No. 11 Wisconsin expect to be at their best when they meet on New Year’s Day.
