Stanford, Michigan State headed to 100th Rose Bowl

Michigan State and Stanford have been selected for the Rose Bowl's centennial.

The No. 4 Spartans will face the fifth-ranked Cardinal on Jan. 1 in the 100th edition of the Rose Bowl game, pitting two venerable programs in Pasadena's traditional Midwest-West Coast intersectional matchup.

Michigan State (12-1) upset Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game on Saturday to earn its first trip to Pasadena since Jan. 1, 1988, when the Spartans beat USC 20-17.

Stanford (11-2) is back in Pasadena for the second straight season after trouncing Arizona State in the Pac-12 title game on Saturday. The powerful Cardinal held off Wisconsin 20-14 last season for the school's first Rose Bowl victory in 40 years.College SportsStanford
