Relive the thrill of the 1979 Rose Bowl, as the USC Trojans take on the Michigan Wolverines. Featuring a memorable play by running back Charles White, who made a touchdown without actually possessing the ball, this battle between two powerful rivals brought USC its second Rose Bowl win over Michigan in three years. A 5.2 magnitude earthquake occurred during the game, helping to make it an unforgettable New Year's Day.
