Ben Gardner

Defensive end | Stanford

In one of the most dramatic plays of the Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio, Gardner knifed through would-be blockers and stopped Wisconsin tailback James White for no gain on fourth-and-goal from the Cardinal 1. Gardner's stop helped Stanford defeat the Badgers 20-14 in Pasadena, Calif., its first Rose Bowl victory in 40 years. Gardner, a native of Mequon, Wis., who grew up a Badgers fan but wasn't recruited by them, had six tackles and one pass breakup and was part of a Stanford defense that held All-American tailback Montee Ball to only 13 yards in the second half.
