Rose Bowl - Washington Huskies vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

NCAA Football Odds

The Washington Huskies were picked as a top college football playoff contender to start the season. And while head coach Chris Petersen did lead the Huskies to the Rose Bowl and a Pac 12 title it was not quite the fulfilling season that was expected. For the second consecutive season the Ohio State Buckeyes are paying the price for one bad game. The Big Ten Conference champions were left out of the college football playoff because of blowout loss at Purdue. But the Rose Bowl game will have special meaning for the Scarlet and Gray. Head coach Urban Meyer will retire at the final gun New Year’s Day.

2019 Rose Bowl at a Glance

Date: Tuesday, January 1, 2019

Time: 5 p.m. ET

Venue: Rose Bowl Stadium

Location: Pasadena, California

Teams: Washington Huskies vs. Ohio State Buckeyes


The Washington Huskies are 10-3 and won their last four games to end up as Pac 12 champions. Most impressive of all was their clinching the North Division in a 28-15 win at Washington State. The Huskies had their share of struggles on offense and finished a poor 84th in the country for scoring. A defense ranked fifth for points allowed saved the season.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are 12-1 and champions of the Big Ten. Their best win of course was the regular season finale against arch rival Michigan, which the Buckeyes won by a score of 62-39 in a game that was not even as close as that eye popping score indicated. Ohio State’s much maligned defense suffocated the Wolverines while Heisman Trophy finalist Dwayne Haskins threw for 396 yards and six touchdown passes. Ohio State ranked second in the country for total offense and 55th for points allowed. Since taking over in 2012 Meyer lost only nine games as head coach.

Rose Bowl Format

The first Rose Bowl was played on January 1, 1902 and was called the East-West Football Game. Michigan routed Stanford 49-0 and the committee elected to discontinue the game and held other events in its place. The game was brought back for the 2015 season and was so successful a new venue was needed to house the enormous crowds. The Rose Bowl was erected in time for the 1923 game.

The game has a long-standing relationship with the Pac-12 and Big Ten Conferences dating back to its early days. The game did feature military base teams during World War I, however. From the 1947 playing until the BCS era, the game matched teams from the now-Pac-12 and the Big Ten. The first game since the 1918 season that didn’t include a team from either conference took place on January 3, 2002 when Nebraska and Miami met for the BCS National Championship.

As part of the CFP, the bowl will host a semifinal contest on a rotating basis every three years. Georgia defeated Oklahoma, 54-48, in a semifinal bout in the 2017 season. In years it doesn’t host a semifinal, the game takes the Pac-12 and Big Ten champ as long as those teams are not in the final four.

Playing in the Rose Bowl has been the ultimate prize for members of the now-Pac-12 and Big Ten Conferences and the game has held true to its roots. In an effort to get a better representation of teams, both conferences adopted a “no repeat” rule for several years. The now-Pac-12 abandoned the rule in the mid-1960s allowing USC to play in four straight bowls from 1967 to 1970.

And the leagues also had an exclusive agreement with the bowl. Teams were not allowed to participate in any other bowl game until 1975. This only increased the importance and stature of the Rose Bowl.

The Rose Bowl became part of the BCS alignment for the 1998 season, but continued, if possible, to maintain its Pac-12/Big Ten matchup. The game twice hosted the BCS National Championship game. Miami defeated Nebraska in the 2001 season game and Texas ousted USC in the 2005 season contest. The Miami/Nebraska tilt was the first since 1943 that didn’t include a Pac-12/Big Ten matchup.

A member of the current Pac-12 Conference has appeared in 96 of the 104 Rose Bowls with USC having appeared in 34 of those games. The league owns a 50-43 record with three ties while the Big Ten is 31-38 in its 69 visits.

4 Alabama 1925,1930, 1934, 1945

With its decades old relationship with the now-Pac-12 and the Big Ten, teams from those leagues have appeared in and won the most games in Rose Bowl history. The biggest culprit is USC, whose 34 appearances and 25 wins far outnumber those of Michigan, which has the second-most bowl victories of any school with eight.

In fact, the Trojans have won more games than other current Pac-12 members Stanford (7), Washington (7), UCLA (5), Oregon (3) and Cal (2) have combined victories. USC added to its total with a thrilling, 52-49, comeback win over Penn State in the 2016 season game

The Big Ten side of the alignment has been dominated by Michigan and Ohio State. One of the two appeared in the bowl every year from 1969 through 1981. The results weren’t favorable as they won just three games and the Big Ten is just 31-38 in the Rose Bowl.

Last year, for the first time since the BCS Title game in 2002, the Rose Bowl did not feature a Big Ten or Pac-12 team. That’s because the game hosted a CFP semifinal between Georgia and Oklahoma, both of which made their second appearance in the Granddaddy of the Them All.
