MSU's Elsworth, Spartans enjoy storybook ending

LOS ANGELES — Can every fairy tail season truly have a memorable storybook ending? If you saw what transpired during the 100th annual Rose Bowl Game on Wednesday night in Pasadena Ca., you have to believe that is true. What else could explain Michigan State’s unforgettable 24-20 win over Stanford and the performance of senior linebacker Kyler Elsworth.

Tom's Take: Too bad there isn't a playoff this year

Michigan State arrived at its first Rose Bowl in 26 years as an underdog to Stanford. But the Spartans left as champs in a thoroughly dominating performance that left no doubt about Michigan State’s status as one of the nation’s top teams. Too bad there isn’t a playoff this season. The Spartans finished 13-1, with the lone defeat being a 17-13 setback at Notre Dame that involved some iffy pass interference calls vs. MSU. It also won each of its first 12 games by double digits and halted then-No. 2 Ohio State’s 24-game winning streak. [ MORE: BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY |

BTN LiveBIG: Kirk Cousins teaching kids

Years before the Washington Redskins made him their starting quarterback this season, Kirk Cousins was displaying leadership skills at Michigan State. Today, as his Spartans play in the 100th Rose Bowl Game, Cousins will serve as the honorary captain for his alma mater. Cousins earned many accolades during his time in East Lansing, Mich., for his work on and off the field; he was an All-Big Ten quarterback who earned the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award for his community service during a stellar playing career. Over the last few years, Cousins has been hosting a football camp on the campus of
