The start of my new year was full of football, the Rosebowl between #3 TCU and #5 Wisconsin. I was feeling a little bad from the day before, New Years Eve, and regretted my decisions. I felt like I had an ok day in all, wishing I was a little sharper to produce a little better. But here are the photos of the day, with TCU crowned victorious with a final score of 21-19. This marked the first time a non-BCS team was playing in the Rosebowl, pretty substantial. First, I got a few photos pregame, such as the Rosebowl pad on the goal post with the color separation in the background.
