USC went on to beat Wisconsin 7-0, the Pacific Coast Conference's first Rose Bowl victory over the Big Ten representative since the conferences began their agreement in 1947.
Willhoite was drafted by the Cleveland Browns, but spent two years playing in Canada before a knee injury ended his career.

A memorial service is pending, and the family asked that any donations be made in his name to the USC athletic department.
