Tide Rolls Up the 405
by

PASADENA, Calif. — The University of Alabama Crimson Tide is now en route to the Rose Bowl for their final walk-through practice before tomorrow night’s BCS championship game.

Security was tight this morning at the Westin Hotel in Costa Mesa that is the Crimson Tide’s headquarters during their stay in southern California. A motorcycle squadron of California Highway Patrol officers was escorting the ‘Bama team up the San Diego Freeway — locally known as “the 405” — on their way to the Rose Bowl.

The last time Alabama played in Pasadena in January, in 1946, the Tide defeated USC 34-14. However, in the next year, the Rose Bowl signed an agreement to match the Big Ten and (what is now the) PAC-10. Crimson Tide fans are excited at their long-awaited return to southern California.
