101st  Rose Bowl Game,2015

The 2015 Rose Bowl (officially known as the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual was a college football bowl game played on January 1, 2015, at the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, California.

The game was televised on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, and broadcast on ESPN Radio and XM Satellite Radio, with the kickoff time set for 5 p.m. ET (2 p.m. local time). The Pasadena Tournament of RosesAssociation organized the game. The Northwestern Mutual financial services organization sponsored the game.

This 101st Rose Bowl Game, as a semifinal for the College Football Playoff (CFP), matched the Oregon Ducks against the Florida State Seminoles as selected by the system's selection committee to compete for a spot at the National Championship game to be played on January 12, 2015 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Against a previously undefeated defending national champion loaded with future NFL players, the Ducks made history and, in the process, shattered the prevailing myths about their team. Oregon, considered by college football’s old guard to be a soft, finesse team with a gadget offense and an unhealthy obsession with uniforms, manhandled Florida State at the line of scrimmage, harassed quarterback Jameis Winston into critical mistakes and turned five Seminoles' turnovers into 34 points in a 59-20 win that gave the Ducks the first victory in College Football Playoff history. Oregon snapped Florida State’s 29-game win streak and staked its claim to a spot in the national title game against Ohio State on Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas.

Oregon won the game, beating Florida State, the last undefeated team of the season, and advanced to the inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship Game, assuring that no team will finish the season with a perfect record.
