PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - The game considered to be the first Rose Bowl was staged in 1902 to help pay for the Tournament of Roses Parade. An unexpectedly huge crowd of about 8,000 sat on temporary stands in a park and watched Stanford lose 49-0 to Michigan.

No. 5 Stanford has returned to Pasadena 112 years later, facing No. 4 Michigan State on Wednesday in the 100th edition of college football's quintessential bowl game.

Far fewer fans will show up to Arroyo Seco on horses and buggies this time, and the game probably won't be called early because of a blowout. The Spartans and Cardinal still believe they'll put on a display of throwback football for the Granddaddy of Them All's centennial celebration.
