Next up, the #5 Penn State Nittany Lions (11-2) face the #9 USC Trojans (9-3) 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 6 have been, last year's Christian McCaffrey draft tape 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. This unbelievable matchup should be the best of this bowl season!
