Rose Bowl: In a nail-biter, USC beats Penn State 52-49

A last-second field goal gave the University of Southern California Trojans a 52-49 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions in Monday's Rose Bowl game in Pasadena, California. The teams were tied 49-49 in the fourth quarter, and Matt Boermeester's 46-yard field goal for USC as the clock ran out was enough for a victory. USC led Penn State 27-21 at halftime, but the roles reversed in the third quarter, with Penn State ahead 49-35. This was the highest scoring game in Rose Bowl history.
