There are a few lines players should not cross during sporting events, and one of Wisconsin’s players did exactly that during the Rose Bowl on Wednesday, which nearly sparked a fight between the Badgers and Oregon Ducks.
It happened at the end of a play in the game, when some trash talking was going on. A Wisconsin player then did something that infuriates opponents — stepping over an Oregon player while he was on the ground.
That’s a no-no, and the Oregon players quickly stuck up for their guy, so a shoving match broke out.
Cooler heads eventually prevailed, and the focus was back on the game itself.
