(WDAY TV) -- The Big Ten conference had a chance to make a major statement today, as 5 of the 6 New Year's Day Bowl games featured a team from the Big Ten.

Instead, the league ended the day with its tail between its legs, losing all but one contest.

In the Grandaddy of 'em all, the Rose Bowl, Wisconsin took on 6th ranked Stanford. And it was the Cardinal, singular, NOT plural, that got off to a fast start.

The final score. 20-14...Stanford wins the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1972.
