Rose Bowl History
The Rose Bowl is the oldest college football bowl
game, having first been played in 1902 and annually since 1916. Also known as The Granddaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl has
been the highest attended bowl game since 1945. The 2014 Rose Bowl Game was the 100th game and featured the Michigan State
Spartans taking on the Stanford Cardinal in a game that the Spartans won 24-20. With the advent of the College Football Playoff
at the end of the 2014 season the Rose Bowl is assured of remaining one of the most important games of the postseason as every
three years starting in 2015 it will be one of the semifinals.
The Rose Bowl features the champion
of the Big Ten battling against the champion of the PAC 12, unless either team is competing for a National Championship. The
Big Ten is now made up of 14 teams who have combined to win 46 national titles in college football, making it one of the most
formidable conferences in all of NCAA football. Michigan leads the way with 42 Big Ten Championships and Ohio State is second
with 34 while Michigan State are currently the defending Big Ten champions. Football and the Big Ten are practically synonymous
and many of the biggest rivalries and games are found within the conference. Any team that is able to make it through the
grueling Big Ten schedule unblemished is well prepared to win a national title. The PAC 12 is typically one of the top conferences
in its own right. One of the things that makes the PAC 12 so special is that each of the schools who were members of the PAC
10 have in-state rivals with whom they engage in bitter battles each season. Teams like Oregon, UCLA, Stanford, and USC are
the traditional powerhouses in the conference but all of the other schools in the conference are capable of pulling off big
upsets and seemingly coming from out of nowhere to win their division as Arizona State did in 2013 when they emerged as the
champions of the PAC 12 South. If you are looking to see some of the best college football games of the year featuring athletes
competing at the highest level you have come to the right place in the PAC 12.

the country week after week, an experience that has only made them better and they are meeting each other at the time when
they are both playing their best football. If you are looking for top tier college football action you need look no further
