Rose Bowl-bound Wisconsin and Texas Christian football teams visit Disneyland

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

The Rose Bowl-bound college football teams made their annual pilgrimage to Disneyland on Sunday, taking in a day of roller coasters, parades and confetti-filled pomp.

During the visit, Wisconsin Badgers and Texas Christian Horned Frogs football players rode the Matterhorn bobsleds and the Mad Tea Party teacups after greeting fans in a celebration in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

“I don’t really like the rides where you go up and down too much,” said 6-foot-3, 305-pound Texas Christian center Jake Kirkpatrick. “It’s hard enough to stay in. I don’t need that part.”
