Winner Of Wisconsin vs Oregon Very Clear, Says ESPN
The winner of Wisconsin vs Oregon is very clear, says ESPN.
Heading into the season Oregon was viewed by many as the consensus best team in the Pac-12.
While the Ducks had a pretty solid year by any objective measure, there is no denying that their inability to make the College Football Playoff was a huge disappointment.
Wisconsin, meanwhile, looked like the second best team in the Big Ten for a good chunk of the year before ultimately falling back down to Earth.
On January 1 these teams will square off in the 2020 Rose Bowl to determine once and for all who will have recorded the better season.
In a recent column for ESPN, college football analyst Adam Rittenberg took a look at this game and decided that the Badgers have a slight edge.
He believes Wisconsin will ultimately win this one 30-27.
“These are similarly constructed teams, bolstered by elite-level offensive lines and well-coached defenses that rarely give up big plays,” he wrote.
“Wisconsin has an edge at running back with Jonathan Taylor, while Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert is a high-level NFL prospect.
“Both teams will be highly motivated, but I like Wisconsin’s running game a little more, as Taylor finishes a historic career on a strong note.”
Will Wisconsin be able to close the year out with one last win? We’ll all find out together come New Year’s Day.
