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.

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.

The 2021 Rose Bowl game was one of two College Football Playoff semifinal matchups, and it was all Alabama as they rolled over Notre Dame. The Crimson Tide jumped to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, and the game was over. The Tide led 21-7 at the half and 28-7 after three quarters. The final score ended up with Alabama winning 31-14.

The game was played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, with Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith winning MVP honors. Patrick Surtain II was named defensive MVP.

Alabama was listed as a 20-point favorite, so despite dominating the game, the Tide did not cover the spread.
