Coach Larry Marmee standing by a presentation By Lee Broom Gallery to The ASU Sun Devils. Framed in a molding shaped to resemble that of a football and covered with the same cowhide as used to make these balls, the memorabilia contained therein tells a story chronicling the most amazing event that this Arizona team can recall.
“The 1987 Rose Bowl was a college football bowl game played on January 1, 1987 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. It was the 73rd Rose Bowl Game. The Arizona State Sun Devils, champions of the Pacific-10 Conference, defeated the Michigan Wolverines, champions of the Big Ten Conference, 22-15. Arizona State quarterback Jeff Van Raaphorst was named the Rose Bowl Player of the Game. This was the first appearance for Arizona State in the Rose Bowl.”
