MSU 24, STANFORD 20: ROSE BOWL CELEBRATION THREAD

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

FIRST, DO THE DANCE OF JOY.

1. Kyler Elsworth: Spartan legend

In place of Max Bullough, the fifth-year senior was all over the place, making many key tackles, including the final fourth down stop to win the game.

2. Connor Cook: MVP again

He was lucky to only finish with one interception, but he made several huge throws and earned his second-straight MVP performance. Remember when he couldn't move the ball on Western Michigan or South Florida?

3. Offensive line: Good enough

MSU didn't get much on the ground, but they did enough to give Cook time in the pocket to complete big throws. #AMSUOLHG is dead.

4. Sparty Yes

All season, every time this MSU team made a big mistake, they bounced back. Connor Cook throws a pick-six and comes back with a TD drive before the end of the first half. Defense struggles early, but completely shuts the Cardinal down the rest of the way, only allowing a field goal outside the first quarter. Sparty No is no more. National respect: Fully earned.

5. Celebrate responsibly.
