Rose Bowl ride from farce to fame

AUTO INSURANCE
FOR EVERYONE

By BILL ALTERMAN
In 1901 a couple of the boys in
Pasadena, California got together
and decided that what their New
Year's celebration needed was
some good wholesome violence.
So they invited Leland Stanford
Jr. College to play a bunch of
roughnecks from the University of
Michigan in a game occasionally
known as football.
Prestn! The first Rose Bowl Al-

Brown. Not being much of a pow-
er (then or now) the boys in Ivy
got stomped.
Even so, the Tournament of
Roses parade was the thing in
Pasadena on New Years day, and
football was secondary. The only
way to make a name for oneself
in Southern California was to
build a float made entirely of
flowers.
Then as now however, flowers

Rose Bowl. What! You've never'
seen a horse-shoe shaped bowl!
Through the years thus, the
granddaddy of all bowl games, has
never been equalled for prestigeJ
or importance. Many of the games
played are forever embedded in
the minds of men everywhere. One
of the first, in 1926, has been call-
ed the greatest ever.
Washington was playing Ala-
bama and led by All-American
George Wilson, the Huskies held a
12-0 halftime lead. Unfortunately,
the Knight of the triple K, were
using no-no tactics and knocked
Wilson out cold. Without their star
performer, Washington couldn't
score and were losing 20-12 when
who should appear but George
Wilson! Immediately taking the
field, the gallant Wilson led his
team on a quick 88 yard scoring
narch to make the score 20-19.
Poof, that's how it ended. Oh,
twell it sounded nice.
until 1947, the contest usual-
ly featured the best in the west
versus some other top ranked
team. In 1947 however, the Big
Ten signed an agreement calling
for the two conference champions
to meet each New Year's day.
In the ensuing years since the
first Rose Bowl, there have beenj
many attempts to match it. Jan-
uary 1st, now has three other
major turf battles and spread out
in the remaining months of the
year are some thirty-odd other
games including the Astro Bowl,
the Camellia Bowl, the Mineral
Water Bowl, the El Toro Bowl and
the Stagg Bowl.
Still, the fair people of Pasadena
should not laugh. In 1918 the
Mare Island Marines upset the
highly touted Camp Lewis Army
group but were upset the following
tear by a mighty group from. Great
Lakes Navy Base.
The Rose Bowl itself it built on
an old rubbish dump affectionally
known as Arroyo Seco. (That's
spanish for dry wash.) Except for
in 1942 when the war forced the
gallant football teams to go at it
in Durham, North Carolina, all
games have since been played in
Pasadena.

MICHIGAN's opponent in the
1965 Rose Bowl had a little
tougher time getting there. Ore-
gon State and Southern Cal
tied for the Pacific Coast Con-
ference title when the Trojans
beat UCLA 34-13 and the Beav-
ers downed Oregon 7-6, scoring
with 54 seconds to play.
The conference vote on its
Rose Bowl representative w a s
held up a week until USC met
No. 1 ranked Notre Dame. Be-
hind at halftime; the Trojans
came back to win it, 20-17. But,
Oregon State got the bowl bid
because Southern Cal had last
gone in 1963 while the Beavers'
last appearance was in 1957.
Not surprisingly, there was a
huge uproar over this decision,
and the results of the Rose Bowl
did little to quiet the furor.
OREGON STATE did draw
first blood in the game as quar-
terback Paul Brothers threw a
touchdown pass to make it 7-0
in the second quarter. Six min-
utes later, however, fullback Mel
Anthony made the game-break-
ing play.
From his own 16. he took a
pitchout from Timberlake,
skirted right end, cut back to
the center of the field, a n d
raced untouched into the e n d
zone.
Michigan scored once more
before the half when halfback
Carl Ward rambled 43 yards.
The two-point conversion at-
tempt was unsuccessful, but the
Wolverines still led, 12-7.
IN THE SECOND half, Mich-
igan came out and ran over the
Beavers for two touchdowns
while displaying a rushing at-
tack that netted 332 yards. An-
thony scored them both on two

short runs, to give him a day's
total of three.
Michigan completed its de-
vastation of the Oregon State
defense when Bob Timberlake
rolled 24 yards into the end zone
for a fourth quarter touch-
down.
As the offense was piling up
points, the Wolverine defense
completely obliterated any hint
of Beaver offensive firepower.
The bigegst plays were a block-
ed punt in the third quarter
that led to a score, and the con-
tinual harassment of signal call-
er Brothers.
Brothers was thrown for a
total of 33 yards in losses dur-
ing the course of the game. Af-
ter the contest, he commented,
"I hope I never have to go
through another afternoon like
that."
