The No. 6 Oregon Ducks and No. 9 Wisconsin Badgers have not only given us a wildly entertaining college football game, but have also produced the highest scoring Rose Bowl in history. A 30-yard field goal by Alejandro Maldonado with 6:50 remaining in the fourth quarter made the score 45-38 Oregon, breaking the 21-year old record for most points scored by both teams in the Rose Bowl:
The over/under for the 2012 Rose Bowl was 73 points, and the two teams hit that number with over five minutes remaining in the third quarter. Given that both teams combined to average over 90 points and 982 yards of offense, the high-scoring nature of this game is no surprise.
