100th Anniversary of the Rose Bowl
Here at History Thru The Ages, I like to explore events and people from the past. Today I’d like to feature the Rose Bowl. For those of you who are football fans or love a football fan, you will probably enjoy this article. At the end of the article there is a series of football photos that spans the last one hundred years. It is a fun view!
Michigan State and Stanford will have the distinction of playing in the 100th Rose Bowl when they hit the field in Pasadena on Wednesday.
As part of the centennial celebration, the Rose Bowl honored Ohio State running back Archie Griffin as its all-century player and USC’s John McKay as its all-century coach.
Michigan beat Stanford 49-0 in the first Rose Bowl in 1902. But the next game wasn’t until 1916 when it started its run as a New Year’s Day fixture in Pasadena, with some exceptions.
What are those exceptions? Click here to read more and view the fun photos.
Happy New Year,
