Great Rose Bowl Moments: 1990 USC vs. Michigan
Nov 09, 2013
The 1990 edition of the "Granddaddy of Them All" featured the USC Trojans and the Michigan Wolverines in what was expected to be a defensive struggle. It certainly turned out that way with the game tied at 10 going into the 4th quarter. USC running back, and Pasadena native, Ricky Ervins cemented his Rose Bowl legacy by scoring on a 14-yard touchdown run in the 4th to put the Trojans up for good, 17-10. Ervins was named MVP of the 76th Rose Bowl.
