Oregon vs. Wisconsin three things to watchJonathan TaylorThe Wisconsin running back ranks second in the FBS with 1,909 rushing yards. He has a chance to complete back-to-back 2,000-yard seasons in a bowl where program legend Ron Dayne was a two-time MVP. It’s a fitting finish for Taylor’s career should he decide to turn pro after the game.Justin HerbertHerbert has one last chance to impress NFL scouts at the college level. The Oregon quarterback had success against the Utes in the Pac-12 championship game, but Wisconsin has a tough pass defense (191.2 yards per game). Herbert (3,333 yards, 32 touchdowns, five interceptions) will let it loose here, too.Conference pride”The Granddaddy of Them All” is always better when it features members of these two conferences, which have become scattered in the College Football Playoff era. The Pac-12 has a 4-3 advantage this decade. The Badgers have a chance to even the score in what should be a fun matchup given the contrast in styles.New Year’s Six bowl schedule 2020DateBowlMatchupTime (TV channel)Dec. 28Cotton BowlPenn State vs. MemphisNoon ET (ESPN)Dec. 28Peach BowlLSU vs. Oklahoma (CFP semis)4 p.m. ET (ABC)Dec. 28Fiesta BowlOhio State vs. Clemson (CFP semis)8 p.m. ET (ABC)Dec. 30Orange BowlFlorida vs. Virginia8 p.m. ET (ESPN)Jan. 1Rose BowlWisconsin vs. Oregon5 p.m. ET (ESPN)Jan. 1Sugar BowlGeorgia vs. Baylor8:45 p.m. ET (ESPN) Get the Latest NCAA odds & betting advice at Sports InsiderSporting News offers an early preview for the Rose Bowl Game between the Ducks and Badgers:When is the Rose Bowl 2020?Date: Jan. 1Time: 5 p.m. (ET)TV broadcast: ESPNLocation: Rose Bowl Stadium, Pasadena, Calif.The 2020 Rose Bowl is at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, Calif., and will be televised at 5 p.m (ET) on ESPN.Who plays in the Rose Bowl 2020?Oregon and Wisconsin will match up in the Rose Bowl Game.The Ducks are making their eighth Rose Bowl appearance.

CHARTER OAK — The Democratic governor of Louisiana and a Republican congressional leader are criticizing Iowa Congressman Steve King for King’s remarks about hurricane victims in their state. King was in Charter Oak for a town hall meeting Thursday and compared victims of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to Iowans dealing with floodwaters now.“We’re Iowans and I’m always proud of our reaction to this,” King said. “I’ve worked with the FEMA people for a long time…Here’s what FEMA tells me. We go to a place like New Orleans and everybody’s looking around saying: ‘Who’s going to help me? Who’s going to help me?’…They’re just always gratified when they come and see how Iowans take care of each other, so that’s a point of pride that spreads across the country.”Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise, the second-ranking Republican in the House, represents the New Orleans suburbs. Scalise called King’s remarks “absurd and offensive and…a complete contradiction” to how the people of New Orleans responded to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, tweeted that King’s comments were “disgusting and disappointing.”King tweeted yesterday that he’s “working to restore free speech to the halls of congress.”During his remarks in Charter Oak yesterday, King said in 2005 he made four visits to New Orleans to tour the devastation.“First member of congress to go in down there. We broke some rules go there, I’ll just confess to that” King said. “Flew into the airport and just keyed the mic and asked permission to land and they gave it to us and so we went in. I saw that from the air and from the ground and did what we could to help those folks down there.”King toured flood damage in Missouri Valley and Hornick yesterday, promising to work closely with local leaders to help Iowans recover from this disaster. “As the Dean of Iowa’s House delegation, and its only Republican, I will not hesitate to use my influence with President Trump to help Iowans gain access to federal flood relief programs,” King said.
