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.

The 2016 campaign to the Rose Bowl was a Cinderella season for Penn State. The team began the season 2-2 and many fans were not anticipating a successful season.

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.

      Well, you have your First Amendment rights and so do I. Your guidance counselor was right, you’ll never amount to anything. Perhaps you should get your GED (if you know how to spell it) and maybe you will get a command of the English language. In the mean time, go back to the bar, drink beer and eat Cheetos. Then go back to your miserable factory job and pontificate to your co-workers about what is wrong with the world and how you intend to fix it. Have a nice day and God bless (you need it).

    Have to laugh , John Myer said in his live report from USC that the fan base was about 50/50.
    Really John did you see the sea of Red about 3/4 of the way around the stadium.
