Michigan State running back Jeremy Langford did not burst onto the scene for the Spartans. The junior from Wayne, Mich., patiently waited his turn. Langford contributed on special teams for two seasons before moving into a starting role for the Spartans, who play Stanford on Wednesday in the 100th Rose Bowl game. “I never looked too far ahead,” said Langford, who has rushed for 1,338 yards and 17 touchdowns this season. “I knew there were good running backs in front of me. I knew I would have to wait my turn and just be patient.

Michigan State has defeated Stanford, 24-20, in the 100th Rose Bowl after the kind of defensive stand -- and offensive play-calling -- that might have been expected. The game was decided on this play: Stanford has the ball on a fourth-and-one play at its own 34 with less than two minutes to play. The Cardinal used its final timeout, presumably to decide whether they would hand the ball off to the left of center or right of center. Then Michigan State used a timeout, apparently to talk about whether Stanford would run to the left of center or the right of center.

Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook described it as “the most stressed out I've ever been in my life.” Cook was reliving his frame of mind during spring practice and fall camp, when he was trying to win the starting position. The third-year sophomore from Hinckley, Ohio, eventually broke through early in the season and helped lead the Spartans to their first Rose Bowl appearance since 1988. Cook has passed for 20 touchdowns with five interceptions for a Michigan State team that plays Stanford on Wednesday in the 100 th Rose Bowl.

EL PASO - UCLA Coach Jim Mora believes quarterback Brett Hundley will return for his junior season - or so he hopes, anyway. Mora, speaking at the Hyundai Sun Bowl news conference, was asked if he had given any thought to Tuesday's game being the last time he would have Hundley. “No,” responded Mora, who then added: "I don't think it will be. " He paused and left wiggle room, saying, “I am very hopeful it won't be.” Hundley has said he will decide whether to declare for the NFL draft sometime after the Sun Bowl.

Stanford will field a defense against Michigan State in the Rose Bowl that includes several fourth- and fifth-year seniors, including linebacker Trent Murphy. This is the fifth consecutive bowl game, and fourth in a row in the coveted Bowl Championship Series games, for the Cardinal. Back in 2007, when those veteran players were in high school, Stanford was in the midst of what would become a seven-year bowl drought. But the recruits got a hint of what might be possible when Stanford, a 41-point underdog under former coach Jim Harbaugh, upset second-ranked USC at the Coliseum, 24-23.

The Rose Bowl game is 100 years old, but the stadium - - or at least part of it - - is new. The city of Pasadena has invested more than $140 million to modernize the iconic Rose Bowl stadium. During the last two years, the stadium has been upgraded with a new video board, restorations to the south and east scoreboards, 10 LED panels and clocks, new aisles and handrails, expanded tunnels, improved bathrooms and a new broadcast building. The electrical and plumbing systems have also been upgraded, as have the locker rooms.
