2013 Rose Bowl projections: Nebraska, Stanford favored for Pasadena

Stephen Dunn

If they can win their respective conference championship games, the Cornhuskers and Cardinal will head to Pasadena on New Year's Day.

The Pac-12 North champion Stanford Cardinal and the Big Ten Legends champion Nebraska Cornhuskers will both get a chance to claim spots in the 2013 Rose Bowl in their respective conference championship games next weekend.

And according to SB Nation's Jason Kirk, that's exactly what's in store for fans in Pasadena on New Year's Day this season. In the latest slate of projected bowls from SB Nation, the Cardinal and Cornhuskers are headed for a traditional Pac-12-Big Ten showdown in the "Granddaddy of them all."

To make its way to Pasadena, Stanford will have to top the UCLA Bruins for a second straight week on Friday in the Pac-12 Championship Game -- a quirk of the late-season scheduling in the Pac-12. The game will kick off at 5 p.m. PST.

Nebraska will take on the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten Championship Game next weekend, with an automatic BCS bowl bid and berth in the Rose Bowl on the line on Saturday. The Big Ten title game will kick off at 5 p.m. PST from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.
