The Badgers are the kings of beef once again.

In one of the more delicious traditions in all of college football, the Wisconsin Badgers defeated the Stanford Cardinal in the Rose Bowl 2013 Lawry's Beef Bowl this week, according to Fox Sports Wisconsin. The Badgers notched their second-straight win in the event by consuming more prime rib than their Pac-12 opponent over a two-day span.

Wisconsin won the contest easily, tallying 619 total pounds consumed to the 602 eaten by the Cardinal. The totals were nowhere near the Badgers' dominant victory over Oregon last year, when Wisconsin put away a whopping 723 pounds of meat.

This is the 56th time the Lawry's Beef Bowl has been held, and the winner has gone on to take the Rose Bowl 70 percent of the time. The Badgers are hoping the victory can change their recent fortunes in the game, as they have lost two-straight Rose Bowls to TCU and Oregon.

The two teams will meet on the field on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. PT.
