PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Fan energy was high as Stanford’s and Michigan State’s football teams geared up for the 100th Rose Bowl Game Wednesday.

CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Bobby Kaple spoke to fans tailgating outside the stadium Wednesday.

“What’s the key to winning the Bowl?” Kaple said to a group of Stanford fans.

“Ground and pound,” one man replied.

Stanford’s team, ranked fifth nationwide, made it to the Bowl after a 38-14 victory over Arizona State in the Pac-12 title game.

Michigan State is making its first-ever appearance at the Bowl Jan. 1 after edging out Ohio State in the Big 10 Championship game.

Tailgaters hailing from the Midwest were enjoying the sunny weather in Pasadena.

“It’s gorgeous,” a Michigan State fan said. “It’s snowing and 20 degrees in Detroit right now.”
