2012 Rose Bowl Highlight: Oregon Recovers Jared Abbrederis Fumble To Help Secure Win Over Badgers

The 2012 Rose Bowl caused the snapping of several offensive records, with many folk wondering if defense had been banned. So of course, the biggest plays in the second half have all been defensive. There were the two interceptions in the third quarter, which stopped an Oregon Ducks drive and then restarted it. A fumble by Jared Abbrederis of Wisconsin sealed the game for Oregon.

The Wisconsin Badgers had the ball with under six minutes left and down by seven. Russell Wilson had gotten the Badgers to their own 44 yard line, and then completed a 29 yard pass to Abbrederis which would have set up the Badgers in great field position. However, Terrance Mitchell managed to strip the ball just before Abbrederis could get out of bounds, and the ball per some miracle stays inside the field of play.

Chip Kelly was the first to notice, yelling and pointing at the ball. Oregn Michael dived on the ball to get the ball back for Oregon. Don't take my word for it though:
