UW parents give their Badger players final words of encouragement


PASADENA, Calif. (WKOW) -- After all the hype and analysis, practices and press conferences, it all comes down to 60 minutes of football Tuesday at the Rose Bowl.

The Badgers took their team photo on Monday and made their final visit before the big day. 

27 Sports caught up with some of the players' parents as they gave their Badgers some final words of encouragement.

"As in every game, Jared and I will pray together and just make sure he gives his best because he's got skills, talents and abilities but they're all from God. So I always say, 'Give God your best and let him do the rest,'" receiver Jared Abbrederis' father Scott said.

"We normally like to go to the hotel and congratulate him and tell him to have a good game, relax, enjoy it. So that's what we did here," said Tyrone White, father of running back James White. "There was an old saying that his former coach used to say: 'Job security is ball security.' So we often remind him about that."

Ball security will be important in the Rose Bowl because there will be little room for error against Stanford. Kickoff is Tuesday, Jan. 1 at 4:10 p.m. CST.
