Rose Bowl tickets

2014 Rose Bowl Schedule

Known as The Granddaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl is the oldest college football bowl game, having played its first game in 1902. It became an annual tradition in 1916 and the 2014 Rose Bowl will mark the 100th Rose Bowl game. Since 1945 the Rose Bowl has also been recognized as the most highly attended bowl game. Held on New Year's Day the game is ties in with the Tournament of Roses Parade which is also one of Southern California's most widely attended annual traditions. However, the most excitement regularly surrounds the Rose Bowl which matches up a team from the Big Ten Against a team from the Pac 12, usually the champions of each conference unless they are going to the BCS National Championship Game. This year it means that Stanford and Michigan State will be facing off against one another at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on January 1st with kick off slated for 1:30 PM Pacific Standard Time. Expect the game this year to be an unforgettable experience, not only because of the two high quality teams involved but also because there will be plenty of celebratory events involved with the 100th game being held.


The Teams

Stanford boasts a proud football tradition which includes NFL greats John Elway, Jim Plunkett, Andrew Luck, Toby Gerhart, and many others. Stanford is a perennial contender in the always tough Pac 12 Conference which means they are usually in the running for a national title, and in recent years expectations at Stanford have been at an all time high. 2014 will mark the second consecutive year that Stanford has appeared in the Rose Bowl, having won the bowl last year with a 20 to 14 victory over the University of Wisconsin. Overall Stanford has appeared in fifteen Rose Bowls, the 2014 one being the sixteenth, and won the contest nine times. You can be sure that the Cardinal will be pulling out all the stops to come home with a tenth Rose Bowl title in 2014.

Michigan State will be appearing in their fourth Rose Bowl, having won two previously. The school's last Rose Bowl victory was in 1956 so the Spartans will be looking to win another after waiting for nearly half a century for another chance. Michigan State has produced eleven members of the College Football Hall of Fame and two members of the NFL Hall of Fame, Herb Adderley and Joe DeLamielleure. With two top tier college football programs taking the field both yearning for a victory the 2014 Rose Bowl should be one for the ages.


The Experience

Upon entering the Rose Bowl fans are well aware that they are about to see a college football game unlike any other. The players warming up on the field are visibly fighting off nerves and trying to get out all of the jitters before the opening kick off. The crowd is full of players' families, alumni, hordes of journalists and sports writers, locals who are always thrilled to take part in the annual tradition, and college football fanatics who are hoping to see another historic college football match up. The pageantry of the cheerleaders, mascots, marching bands, and wild fans are enough to get you out of your seat, and then the game begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, clutch field goals, and game breaking plays fill up the day of world class college football. By the time the clock winds down your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high fives and you will already be planning a return trip the following year.


The Players

Of course one of the best part about college football bowl games is watching some of the best student athletes in the world perform on the biggest stage and the 2014 Rose Bowl has some talented play makers who could be taking the field for the last time as a college athlete. Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard is a lock down cornerback who won the Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year Award this year and is a projected first round NFL pick. Stanford running back Tyler Gaffney has play making speed and will be looking to break open some big runs early on to loosen up the defense and help get the Cardinal's passing attack going. Year after year there are players who are not household names who step up and make a big impact at the Rose Bowl and it will be exciting to see which players do it this season.
