ROSE BOWL HISTORY

The Rose Bowl dates as far back as 1902 and began in 1916 with the matchup hosting schools from the Big Ten and Pac-12 conferences. This traditional matchup ended with the bowl started to participate in championship and semifinal matchups. During years the Rose Bowl is not used as a venue for the postseason, then it reverts back to the original bowl tie-ins. This game takes place at the Rose Bowl from Pasadena, California and is usually played on New Year's Day. 

USC has the most appearances (34) and wins (25) in Rose Bowl History, including an epic 52-49 shootout against Penn State which netted the most total points in the history of the 'Granddaddy of them all'. The 59 points scored by the Oregon Ducks in the 2014 season was the most ever in Rose Bowl history.

The Pac-12 got back in the win column in the 2019 installment as Oregon rallied past Wisconsin for a 28-27 win. 

The Rose Bowl is part of the College Football Playoff rotation and was part of three semifinal matchups played in 2014, 2018 and 2021. The first two easily went 'over' in those semifinal games, but the 'under' hit in Alabama's rout of Notre Dame in 2021.

  • Oregon 59 Florida State 20
  • Georgia 53 Oklahoma 48 (2OT)
  • Alabama 31 Notre Dame 14

In 2022, it was back to a traditional Big Ten vs. Pac-12 matchup, and it was a classic. Ohio State outlasted Utah by a 48-45 count, with Buckeyes WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba setting an all-time bowl record with 347 receiving yards on 15 grabs with three touchdowns.
