Flashback: MSU, 49-Wisconsin 14

For your daily Big Ten Championship game pump up video, we give you Your Michigan State Spartans spoiling the 2004 Badgers run at the Rose Bowl. Wisconsin came into East Lansing ranked #5, with bushels of roses in tow. MSU running back Jehuu Caulcrick said after MSU’s 49-14 drubbing of Wisky, the MSU players took the roses to some of EL’s finest drinking establishments.

Fun fact: Both Sara G. and I were in attendance for this game, but neither of us have very clear memories of it. Freshman year football season is one big blur. We at Sports Squared would like to take this time to point out some fine facts about the five Bielma/Dantonio matchups.

  • In the five times MSU/Wisconsin have met with these two as head coach, MSU leads the series 3-2
  • The margins of victory in these games: 3,1, 8,10, 6.
  • Edge to the home team in every match up.

Wrapping up, congrats to Kirk Cousins for making the finalists list for the Manning Award. Wisconsin’s Russel Wilson also a finalist.

We’d also like to acknowledge that Mark Dantonio was robbed of his second consecutive Big 10 coach of the year award today. That award went to Brady Hoke.

P4RB and as always, Go Green!

    I remember this game, I was there, too! everyone was chanting “no more rose bowl.” they probably dislike us as much as we dislike them, actually.

    I do not care about their feelings. 🙂
