English soccer giant Manchester United will meet the Galaxy in a July 23 friendly at the Rose Bowl. The match will be the first in the team's summer tour of the United States, and it will also mark the first time the team will wear its Chevrolet-branded kits. General Motors paid a record $560 million over seven years to place the Chevy name and bow-tie logo on the team's uniform. United, which has won 13 of 21 English titles decided during the Premier League era, will be in the U.S. to compete in the International Champions Cup, a tournament that debuted last year and included two games at Dodger Stadium.

The NFL is returning to Los Angeles … just as it does every summer. The L.A.

"Purple to Pasadena" is a Rose Bowl refrain that traditionally should have everything to do with Northwestern and nothing to do with Texas Christian. Gary Barnett once made good on a vow to lead Evanston to the Land of Milk and Sunny (except for most of this month), but no one 15 years ago could have imagined a "Gary" Patterson leading Forth Worth forth. "Horns to Hollywood" should be a battle cry connected to Arizona's brass section, not to frog legs. Texas Christian vs. Wisconsin is a terrific Rose Bowl matchup, unless you're from 1978 and think Stanford vs. Wisconsin was the obvious answer.

There's no telling if or when an NFL team might return to Los Angeles, but the Rose Bowl wants to be ready if that happens. Stadium backers want the venue to be a temporary home for an NFL team while a new NFL stadium is being constructed downtown, in City of Industry or, perhaps, someplace else. (The Coliseum would likely compete for the same temporary-home status.) In order for the Rose Bowl to be considered, it would need to provide an environmental impact report that on the viability of playing host to NFL games, a report that would take as long as eight months to complete and cost approximately $400,000.

Wisconsin has found a short-term answer to its Rose Bowl coaching problem, and it's a familiar face. It is being reported that Athletic Director Barry Alvarez, who led the school to three Rose Bowl victories, will return to the sideline to coach the Badgers against Stanford. Alvarez will replace Bret Bielema, who shocked the school this week by taking the head coaching job at Arkansas. The Wisconsin State Journal reported that Badgers captains asked Alvarez to coach the team in the Rose Bowl and that he accepted.

Quarterback Kevin Hogan helped lead Stanford to a 20-14 victory over Wisconsin in the 2013 Rose Bowl. Hogan completed 12 of 19 passes for 123 yards and also rushed for 54 yards in seven carries. “I was happy with myself,” he said Friday. “Obviously, there were throws that I would have liked to have made. “Certainly near the end of the game I remember we could have put it out of reach, but that's stuff that you can learn from and it's going to be so nice to be on that same field this year and be able to hit those throws again and kind of get a second chance.” Hogan, a junior from Virginia, is looking forward to the Cardinal's New Year's Day matchup against Michigan State in the 100th Rose Bowl game.

The 90-year-old Rose Bowl has locked down a new-age TV deal for the “Granddaddy of Them All.” According to a Sports Business Journal report, ESPN has agreed to pay an average of $80 million per year to broadcast the Rose Bowl game through 2026. That represents a rights-fee increase of 167% from the $30 million the network currently pays, said the report, which cited unnamed industry experts. The Pac-12 and Big Ten keep all the media revenue for that New Year's Day bowl game, except in years in which the Rose Bowl is part of the new playoff system.

Eminem and Rihanna's upcoming “Monster” tour  has already gotten bigger.

The upcoming trek is the first time the two collaborators have toured together. But their track record has long been cemented.

A bill has landed on the desk of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer that local business leaders and others fear might cost the state next year's Super Bowl. Conceived by a conservative advocacy group and a Christian legal organization, Senate Bill 1062 would allow businesses to cite religious beliefs in refusing service to gay people and others. Brewer has until Saturday to either veto, sign or ignore it. The Arizona Super Bowl host committee joined the many groups against the bill. "On that matter we have heard loud and clear from our various stakeholders that adoption of this legislation would not only run contrary to that goal but deal a significant blow to the state's economic growth potential," the committee said . "We do not support this legislation.

The American Football Coaches Assn. announced Monday at its annual convention in Indianapolis that the coaches college football poll will continue in the new College Football Playoff. The poll will go on despite having no role in choosing the champion in the four-team playoff. The USA Today coaches' poll had been been a key part of the standings formula that picked the top two teams in the 16-year era of the Bowl Championship Series. It had a sketchy and sometimes controversial ride because the coaches were contractually obligated to award the BCS title to the winner of the top two teams in the final BCS standings.

Turn out the lights, the parity's over. The Bowl Championship Series era of equal access and catering to college football's "little guys" ended Monday night at the Rose Bowl when Florida State ended the Southeastern Conference's winning streak. The new playoff format will weed out the weak, make the big conferences richer and the small conferences poorer. Why do you think Chris Petersen finally left Boise State for Washington? There are exciting times ahead for everyone except the Sun Belt Conference and the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

The 16-year era of the Bowl Championship Series ended Monday night in the Rose Bowl. There were fireworks and a trophy presentation and then someone turned out the lights on a colorful, and controversial, chapter of college football. The Rose Bowl hosted two games this season, the Rose Bowl and the BCS title game, but those days are over. Next year, the four-team College Football Playoff replaces the BCS system. Here's how it will work: Instead of using a standing formula to determine the top two teams, a 13-member committee will select and seed the top four teams.

The city of Pasadena broke the record for the number of mariachis playing in a single location on Sunday, hosting a performance by 566 musicians at the Rose Bowl. The five-minute serenade, staged during halftime of the Mexico vs. Panama match of the 2013 Gold Cup, beat the previous record set three years ago, when 555 mariachis appeared at a conference in Tucson. Guinness World Records officials were at the stadium to mark the new record, said Pasadena city spokesman William Boyer.

Tradition dictates that for big sporting events, such as the World Series, Super Bowl, or NBA Finals, the mayors of the respective teams' cities place a friendly wager on the game. For example, if L.A. and New York were involved, L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa could wager a box of California oranges and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg could wager whatever it is that New York is known for. Crime, I suppose. The loser of the bet sends what he put up to the winner. For the Rose Bowl game, which matches Stanford against Wisconsin, the wager -- announced Thursday by the mayor of Palo Alto, Calif., home of Stanford, and the mayor of Madison, Wis. -- is a bit different.

They started the night with a barrage of pregame fireworks in the Rose Bowl. A few hours later, the rockets really went off. This was not so much a game as a roller coaster. If you are a drama lover, an excitement junkie, you couldn't help but get high on this one. The last 4 1/2 minutes were college football's Space Mountain. There was a 100-yard kickoff return by a Florida State freshman, who is only 5 feet 7, who was a state champion sprinter and who goes by either Kermit Whitfield or Levonte Whitfield.
