Elite Tailbacks Square Off at Rose Bowl

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- LaMichael James figures most of the college football world has seen that priceless photo by now. Oregon's tailback was captured in one of those roller-coaster snapshots while riding Space Mountain at Disneyland on Monday.

Let's just say the look on his face won't exactly intimidate Wisconsin or Montee Ball, his ball-carrying counterpart, in the Rose Bowl on Monday.

James got a hearty laugh out the whole thing, welcoming it as a break from a serious week of preparation for a showdown between two of the most dynamic tailbacks in college football.

James is the lynchpin of the sport's most prolific offense, while Ball leads the nation in yards rushing and touchdowns.

To top it off, the Rose Bowl also could be both junior stars' final college game.
