This is a very little known fact, likely one that even Bielema doesn't remember but maybe, just maybe it stuck in the back of his thick head.
Bielema was a member of the 1990 Rose Bowl team. During the 3rd quarter of the 1991 Rose Bowl after Mark Brunell scored on a 20 yard run to make the score 39-14 the Huskies actually went for two. The conversion failed and Iowa lost by 12. Maybe they had the same card, who knows.
