A look back at 100 years of Rose Bowls

If you enjoy college football history and/or the Rose Bowl, you'll love the project currently on ESPN.com. Colleague Ivan Maisel and several of us looked at all 99 previous Rose Bowls. The 100th edition of the Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO kicks off Wednesday as No. 4 Michigan State takes on No. 5 Stanford.

Check out capsules of each Rose Bowl, as well as Maisel's column on why the game is so significant in American culture. There's a photo retrospective and video of some of the game's top moments.

Take a trip down memory lane as we get ready for the 100th Rose Bowl.
