The 99th Rose Bowl might have put your Granddaddy asleep on Tuesday, but Stanford and its fans will be up for days celebrating the school's first Rose Bowl victory in more than four decades.

Usua Amanam's interception of Wisconsin quarterback Curt Phillips pass with 2:03 left clinched Stanford's 20-14 win before a crowd of 93,359 on a cold, crisp day.

It was an old fashioned, hard-fought, slugfest.

Some might have called it boring. The schools, in the third quarter, combined for seven punts and three first downs. The teams totaled 37 combined passes and 80 runs. Wisconsin ended with only 83 total passing yards while Stanford finished with 157.
