Wisconsin Badgers Video of the Day, 6/19: 1963 Rose Bowl highlights

Throwin' it waaaaaay back: No. 1 vs. No. 2. The stage was set for the 1963 Rose Bowl in which Wisconsin faced top-ranked USC. In one of the most memorable Rose Bowls to date -- over 50 years later, mind you -- the Badgers roared back behind the arm of Ron Vander Kelen, who threw for 400 yards, to score 23 fourth-quarter points before falling 42-37. If you bet on the Trojans, you won some money; Milt Bruhn's squad was a two-point favorite. Tight end and former athletic director Pat Richter caught the last touchdown for UW in his final game that day.
