The 2007 Rose Bowl Game presented by Citi was a college football bowl game. It was part of the 2006-2007 Bowl Championship Series (BCS) of the 2006 NCAA Division I-BS football season and the 93rd Rose Bowl Game, played on January 1, 2007, at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California. The game matched the University of Southern California Trojans and the University of Michigan Wolverines, and was televised on ABC. Dwayne Jarrett, a USC wide receiver, and Brian Cushing a USC outside linebacker, were named the Rose Bowl Players Of The Game.

A moment of silence prior to the National Anthem was held in memory of former Michigan center, the 38th President of the United States and 1978 Tournament of Roses Grand Marshall Gerald Ford, who died six days earlier. George Lucas, Southern California alum, the creator of the "Star Wars" series of films and 2007 Tournament of Roses Grand Marshall, flipped the coin. The coin used featured Southern California's logo one on side and Michigan's logo on the other. Neither team called a side as the team's logo that landed up won the coin toss. Southern California deferred after winning the coin toss, and Michigan elected to receive the ball on the kickoff. The game officially started at 2:00 pm PST(UTC-8).


The University of Southern California Trojans and Michigan Wolverines returned to the Rose Bowl Game presented by citi in the first BCS game of 2007 on New Years' Day in Pasadena, California. Historically, the Rose Bowl has pitted the Pac-10 and Big Ten regular season champions. The Pac-10 champion Trojans played in a "non-traditional" Rose Bowl matchup with the University of Michigan Wolverines. What made this game a not-so-traditional matchup is that Michigan entered as the runner-up of the Big Ten, as the Big Ten champions Ohio State instead participated in the BCS Championship Game due to their #1 national ranking. With their win, the Trojans moved to 6-2 in their eight meetings with the Wolverines in Pasadena. Dwayne Jarrett and Brian Cushing were named the game's offensive and defensive MVP's, respectively.

Game notes

Many times the participants of the Rose Bowl game have been the winners of the respective UCLA-USC rivalry and Michigan-Ohio State rivalry games, although there have been instances where the loser of the rivalry game still won the conference championship. In the 2007 Rose Bowl game, the participants "both" were the losers of those games, and Michigan was an at-large BCS participant with a second place Big Ten finish.
