Spartan Locker Room celebration, Rose Bowl Parade photos and more

Posted: Updated:
Pasadena, California (WJBK) -

On a confetti-covered stage atop a hallowed field, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio managed to sum up a quarter-century of frustration, a stellar season and a tenacious bowl victory in one word.

"Completion," he said.

With a 24-20 victory over Stanford on Wednesday night, the Spartans reached the goal set by Dantonio seven years ago. They're champions of the Rose Bowl, rulers of the Big Ten -- and nobody's little brother anymore.

Connor Cook passed for a career-high 332 yards and hit Tony Lippett with a tiebreaking 25-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter, and No. 4 Michigan State held off the fifth-ranked Cardinal in the 100th Rose Bowl.

Play the embedded video in the player at the top of this story to see how the Spartan football team celebrated the win.   Check out how the day began in Pasadena with a photo gallery of the Rose Bowl Parade.  Play the lower video player to hear Dantonio talk about his team's win.
