The 100th edition of the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day bring us a match up between two of the toughest teams in the game of college football in the Michigan State Spartans and the Stanford Cardinal.
Both of these teams love to play a gritty, hard-nosed brand of football that’s based a lot on the run game and controlling the clock, as well as the trenches.
That’s why many old-school football fans are looking forward to this one, as these two get set to clash.
Early on though, the Cardinal showed off a little bit of the passing attack they have with QB Kevin Hogan.
On this second down play, Hogan dropped back and found the speedy Ty Montgomery for the big gain to keep their opening drive going:
That play certainly caught the Michigan State defense off guard, as well as everyone else watching that was expecting to see a lot of running the ball.
Although, Stanford did score with a Tyler Gaffney run at the end.
