The teams competing in next week’s Rose Bowl Game stopped by today for their annual visit to the Disneyland Resort. This year’s 106th game features the Oregon Ducks and the Wisconsin Badgers.
A cavalcade celebrating the teams was canceled due to possible weather, but members from the teams did hold a press conference inside the Opera House on Main Street USA.
Mickey Mouse, Disneyland Vice President Kris Theiler, and Disneyland Resort Ambassador Rafa Baron welcomed Tournament of Roses President Laura Farber, plus members of both teams.
Oregon head coach Mario Cirstobal brought along linebacker Troy Dye, quarterback Justin Herbert, defensive tackle Jordan Scott, and offensive lineman Calvin Throckmorton. Wisconsin was represented by head coach Paul Chryst and running back Jonathan Taylor, linebacker Chris Orr, center Tyler Biadasz, and linebacker Zack Baun.
The Ducks and the Badgers will compete on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, California.
