Pasadena, California, was the setting for the 101st Rose Bowl game. The Pacific-12 Champion Oregon Ducks (13-1) with their high-powered offense led by 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, squared off against undefeated Florida State (13-0), the Atlantic Coast Conference champions. Florida State also featured the 2013 Heisman winner, Jameis Winston.
This year's Rose Bowl game took on added significance because it was the stepping-stone to the national championship game in the inaugural four-team College Football Playoff.
Oregon's opportunistic defense and its heralded high-octane offense, proved too much for the Seminoles. Before 91,322 fans, Oregon scored the game's final 34 points to snap Florida State's 29-game winning streak. Its 59-20 victory also propelled the Ducks into the National Championship against Ohio State.
“I’m the luckiest guy in the world to be around these guys,” Oregon Coach Mark Helfrich said. "This team is unbelievable — unbelievable. To be around these guys every single day, that’s probably the biggest blessing of all!"
