PASADENA, Calif. — Penn State’s Blue Band had the honor of playing the national anthem at the 103rd Rose Bowl.
The Nittany Lions are back in the Rose Bowl for the first time since the end of the 2008 season. Before the Blue Band played, several World War II veterans were honored, including a member of Duke’s 1941 Rose Bowl team. That game was moved to Durham, N.C., a few weeks after the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.
While the Blue Band was performing, a B-2 Spirit stealth bomber flew over the stadium.
