Rose Bowl: TCU Leads Wisconsin 14-13 At Half

The TCU Horned Frogs lead the Wisconsin Badgers 14-13 at half time in the 2011 Rose Bowl, thanks in large part to quarterback Andy Dalton.

Dalton completed seven of 10 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 31 yards on seven attempts and a touchdown – accounting for both of TCU’s scores.

TCU’s third down efficiency has played a large part in their halftime lead as well. The Horned Frogs have converted three of four third down attempts as TCU was forced to punt only once in the first half.

Wisconsin leads TCU in total yards by a healthy margin, 234 to 141. The Badgers, however, left points on the board when kicker Philip Welch missed a 39 yard field goal attempt. The Badgers are four for nine on third down conversions but also two for two on fourth down conversions, including a fake punt on 4th and 9.

TCU will receive the ball to start the second half as the Horned Frogs look to increase their lead.
