New Year's Day football continues this afternoon when the Oregon Ducks and Wisconsin Badgers meet in Pasadena, California, for the latest Rose Bowl.

Today's game is expected to be the last college football game for Ducks QB Justin Herbert, a potential first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, as he looks to close out his college career with one last win. Wisconsin had a rough year with loses against Big Ten rivals Illinois and Ohio State, but junior running back Jonathan Taylor has been a bright spot. Wednesday could also mark Taylor's last college game should he decide to enter the NFL Draft. 

The Rose Bowl kicks off on Wednesday, Jan. 1, at 2 p.m. PT (5 p.m. ET) and will be broadcast on ESPN
