Stanford, Florida State Take BCS Bowls

New Year's Day provided college football fans with six bowl games, including two BCS tilts. Stanford took down Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl, 20-14. It was the first Rose Bowl victory for the Cardinal since 1972, while the Badgers have lost three straight in the "Grandaddy of them all." Florida State pounded MAC foe Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl, 31-10. It was the first Orange Bowl win for the Seminoles since 1996. NIU was the first one-loss team from a non-BCS conference to play in a BCS bowl game.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, Oklahoma State crushed Purdue in the Heart of Dallas Bowl, 58-14. Northwestern won its first bowl since 1949 with a 34-20 win over Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl.
