Rose Bowl should be quite a game
As venerable play-by-play man Keith Jackson like to say, the 92nd Rose Bowl "should be a dandy." The No. 1-ranked Southern Cal Trojans are gunning for their third straight national championship, but they'll face a formidable foe in the No. 2 Texas Longhorns.
This clash of football titans features a pair of 12-0 teams and plenty of star power: USC boasts the last two Heisman trophy winners in quarterback Matt Leinart and running back Reggie Bush, and Texas QB Vince Young finished second in the balloting this year. Look for them to light up the scoreboard because both teams average more than 50 points per game. Jackson will call the action live from Pasadena, along with broadcast partner Jim Fouts. Play begins at 8 on ABC (WJBF, Channel 6).
