2010 Pretend Playoffs - First Round #4 Stanford vs. #5 Wisconsin (Upset Alert!)





I'm not sure if you can really call it an upset when a #5 seed knocks off a #4 seed because the two are so closely ranked together but that's the possibility before us in #4 Stanford's Gator Bowl match-up against #5 Wisconsin in the first round of our pretend playoffs.  

1st 2nd 3rd 4th Total
Wisconsin Badgers                                                7 24 0 6 37
Stanford Cardinal                                                 13 0 7 14 34

Stanford completely outplays Wisconsin in the second half but a huge rushing onslaught in the second quarter by the Badgers will prove too much for the Cardinal to overcome, thus sending home our first higher seeded team at the hands of a lower seed.
