The 1990 Rose Bowl was the 76th Rose Bowl Game. The game was a rematch of the 1989 Rose Bowl, won by Michigan, 22-14. Gaining a measure of revenge, the USC Trojans defeated the Michigan Wolverines 17-10. USC RB Ricky Ervins was named the Rose Bowl Player Of The Game. [http://www.bowlprograms.com/rosebowl/?pg=182 2008 Rose Bowl Program] , 2008 Rose Bowl. Accessed January 26, 2008.] The game was known for being legendary Michigan Wolverines' head coach Bo Schembechler's final game as a head coach.


Michigan Wolverines

The Wolverines lost their opening game, at home, to Notre Dame 24-19. The UCLA Bruins under Terry Donahue and the Michigan Wolverines under Bo Schembechler met for the only time since the 1983 Rose Bowl in a UCLA home game at the Rose Bowl Stadium on September 23, 1989. The #5 ranked Michigan Wolverines defeated #24 ranked UCLA 24-23. This was the first win in a 10-game winning streak. The biggest win was a 24-10 win at Illinois that ultimately gave the Big 10 title to Michigan over the 2nd place Illini.

USC Trojans

USC lost their opener to Illinois 14-13, but won the rest with the exception of a 28-24 mid season loss at Notre Dame and a 10-10 tie in their regular season finale with rival UCLA. They won the Pac-10 title by 2 1/2 games over Washington.

Game Summary

The game was expected to be a tight physical defensive struggle and it was. USC had leads of 7-0 and 10-7 but each time Michigan came back to tie the score. Midway through the 4th quarter, Michigan faced a 4th down and 2 yards to go at its own 46 yard line. The normally conservative Bo Schembechler called for a fake punt and it worked to perfection as punter Chris Stapleton rambled 24 yards for a first down. However, the outside left lineman for Michigan had the USC outside contain man in a bear hug so Michigan was penalized 10 yards for holding. When informed of the penalty, Bo had one of his classic sideline tirades, ripping his headset off his head and slamming it to the ground, screaming at the refs, and getting his feet tangled in the headset wires. Now faced with 4th and 12, Michigan decided to punt. USC's offensive line and running back Ricky Ervins then took over, and USC methodically marched down field and scored the winning touchdown with just over a minute to play.
