PASADENA (AP) — For the second straight year, TCU is unbeaten, untied — and unable to play for the national championship.
At least the Horned Frogs are getting one granddaddy of a consolation prize.
No. 3 TCU (12-0) is headed to its first Rose Bowl for a showdown with fourth-ranked Wisconsin (11-1), both schools learned Sunday night.
TCU is busting the BCS for the second straight season, following last year’s loss to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl.
The Frogs held out hope of a title shot until Saturday, but Auburn and Oregon won their final regular-season games to stay in front.
Big Ten co-champion Wisconsin is headed back to Pasadena for the first time since the 1999 season, when the Badgers beat Stanford on Jan. 1, 2000.
