LOS ANGELES (AP) - Joe Paterno is coming to California for the
The sixth-ranked Nittany Lions will play in the Rose Bowl game
on New Year's Day for just the third time, facing No. 5 Southern
The Trojans will be making their fourth straight appearance and
record 34th overall in college football's oldest bowl game, known
as the Grandaddy of Them All, an especially appropriate moniker
this time around considering Paterno turns 82 in two weeks.
The teams met in 1923 in the ninth Rose Bowl, with USC beating
Penn State 14-3, one of the Trojans' record 23 wins in the game.
The Nittany Lions evened their Rose Bowl record 14 years ago under
Paterno, beating Oregon 38-20.
