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.
Wisconsin Badgers 7
Stanford Cardinal 13
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.
Stepfan Taylor 6 yd. run (Whitaker missed extra point)
Montee Ball 7 yd. pass from Tolzien (Welch kick)
Stepfan Taylor 33 yd. run (Whitaker kick)
Montee Ball 46 yd. run (Welch kick)
John Clay 16 yd. run (Welch kick)
John Clay 18 yd. run (Welch kick)

Philip Welch 35 yds.
Andrew Luck 2 yd. run (Whitaker kick)

Now we have our first second round match-up set as the Badgers will play the top seeded Auburn Tigers in the Fiesta Bowl.
