Dalton threw for a touchdown and ran for another as the Horned Frogs finished their season undefeated (13-0), for only the second time in the program's history. TCU Linebacker Tank Carder deflected a pass attempt on Wisconsin's 2-pt conversion try with around two minutes to play. TCU's Bart Johnson recovered the on-side kick attempt late and the third-ranked Horned Frogs chipped No. 4 Wisconsin 21-19 in Pasadena.
TCU's QB also threw for 219 yards, and Montee Ball rushed for 132 yards and a touchdown late in the game Badgers for the Big Ten co-champion Badgers, who joined the rest of the conference in a five-loss performance.
For TCU, then finally get closure following a loss to Boise State in last year's Tostios Fiesta Bowl. There is a chance the Horned Frogs could finish second in the final standings, a big statement for all non-Automatic Qualifying schools fighting the BCS system.
