ROSE BOWL POST GAME – Mario Cristobal, Justin Herbert and Brady Breeze Talk About the Ducks 28-27 Win Over Wisconsin
Mario Cristobal, Brady Breeze and Justin Herbert walked into the Rose Bowl media compound Wednesday evening smiling from ear to ear.
And why shouldn’t they be smiling?
They just dispatched Big 10 power Wisconsin in the 106th playing of the Rose Bowl by a score of 28-27.
And while No. 6 Oregon didn’t play their best game against the No. 8 Badgers, they played well enough to get the win late in the game when it was still in doubt.
“I think the offensive line and the defensive line deserve a ton of credit because, again, and I think Wisconsin is an excellent football team” explained Cristobal after the game.
“They are. They’re physical. They’re tough. They’re well-coached. All the respect in the world for them.
Our guys knew this was going to be a 15-round fight, right? And rounds 10 through 15 usually decide which heavyweight walks away with the hardware. And our guys just found a way to keep swinging, get up one more time, throw one more punch. And it’s a testament to what they are, what their DNA is. And I really believe that these guys are just getting started.”
The younger guys are certainly just getting started, however seniors like Justin Herbert played their very last game in a Duck uniform.
Asked about his thoughts as he walked off the Rose Bowl field Justin paused and said “I wish it wasn’t over. It’s been the best four years of my life.”
“I’ve been honored to be a part of this team and to represent Eugene and the university. It’s humbling and it’s been such a great experience.”
