December 28, 1991 | BOB WOLF, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
If you are under 40, you may be surprised to learn that the Big Ten used to have an annual New Year's feast in the Rose Bowl. In the first 13 years of the alliance between the Big Ten and the Pacific Coast Conference, forerunner of the Pacific 10, the Big Ten entry won 12 times. It swept the first six games, from 1947 through 1952, lost the seventh, then won six more. The only PCC school to cut into that monopoly was USC, and the only Big Ten school to lose was Wisconsin.

Cities at war: Things are getting nasty in the fight between the Boston-Foxboro area and Providence, R.I., which is trying to lure the New England Patriots. Writes Boston Globe columnist Mike Barnicle: "Rhode Island is the only state in the union where residents spend more time planning automobile accidents and insurance rip-offs than kids' birthday parties. "Downtown Providence is indeed very nice, with fine hotels and a convention center better than anything Boston has to offer.

The plane trip Saturday from Madison, Wis., to Los Angeles was a happy one for the Wisconsin Badgers. They would love to make the return trip even more pleasurable. "The windchill was minus-25, so this was a great day for us to get out of Madison," Coach Barry Alvarez said with a laugh moments after the team arrived for its first Rose Bowl appearance in 31 years.

A public dressing down by Coach Mike Ditka is proving to be the best thing that could have happened to quarterback Jim Harbaugh. For the second consecutive game since Ditka berated him after a loss to Minnesota on Oct. 4, Harbaugh performed like an all-pro. Harbaugh matched a 28-year-old club record Sunday by completing 13 consecutive passes during the Bears' 30-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers. He finished 16 of 23 passes for 194 yards and one touchdown.

It's debatable which is more remarkable, the life lived by Al "Hoagy" Carmichael or the hard-bound, photo-filled, 399-page, eight-pound autobiography he wrote to celebrate it. In a wondrous example of the star-touched symmetry that typifies his life, the former Gardena High, Santa Ana College, Marine Corps, USC, NFL and AFL running back lived as a young boy in a home where Jim Thorpe had once lived, and as an adult stood in for Burt Lancaster in the 1951 film, "Jim Thorpe: All American."
