USC Defeats Penn State in Dramatic Finish
PASADENA — The USC Trojans have won the 103rd Rose Bowl, defeating the Penn State Nittany Lions by a score of 52-49 in a down-to-the-wire game.
This was the third Rose Bowl match-up between the Nittany Lions and the Trojans.
The last time the two teams met in the Rose Bowl was in 2009.

Penn State finished the regular season 10-2, capping off the year with a Big Ten Championship title.
This is the 25th Rose Bowl win for USC.
