The college football BCS bowl schedule kicked off yesterday with both the Rose Bowl and Orange Bowl games. In the Rose Bowl, the Stanford Cardinal held off the Big Ten's Wisconsin Badgers to win 20-14. For Stanford, it was their first Rose Bowl win in 40 years. With the loss, Wisconsin lost its 3rd consecutive Rose Bowl game. Meanwhile in the Orange Bowl, Florida State proved to be too much for the upstart Northern Illinois Huskies. The Seminoles scored 14 points in the 4th quarter to beat NIU 31-10. Tonight, the 3rd ranked Florida Gators will take on the Louisville Cardinals in the Sugar Bowl.
