New Year's Bowls 2016: Rose Bowl Game Open Thread

The great tradition of New Year's Day college football continues in Pasadena. Follow and discuss the game with us here!

Next up, the #5 Iowa Hawkeyes (12-1) face the #6 Stanford Cardinal (11-2) in the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual®.  This is the "Grandaddy of Them All" and should make for another fantastic Rose Bowl, as 4 of the last 5 have been, last year's Winston vs. Mariota game not withstanding.

I've always had a particular soft spot for the Rose Bowl, living just 15 minutes from the picturesque venue.  Few sights in sports are as consistently breathtaking as the sun setting behind the San Gabriel Mountains in the third quarter of the Rose Bowl Game.  Unlike others today, this game should be good!
