Rose Bowl Betting Odds

The Ohio State Buckeyes added another Rose Bowl victory to their resume last season when they beat the Washington Huskies 28-23 in “The Granddaddy of Them All”. Ohio State was ahead the entire way, taking a 28-3 lead into the fourth quarter until Washington scored 20 straight in the fourth quarter to make the final score respectable. It was the final game at the helm of the Buckeyes for Urban Meyer, who rode into retirement once more afterwards.

Rose Bowl Game 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 Rose Bowl committee elected to discontinue the game and held other events in its place. The game was brought back for the 1915 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. From the 1947 edition 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. The Hurricanes won that game 37-14 signaling that ‘The U’ was indeed back.

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 the last semifinal back 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.

Both conferencs 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.

A member of the current Pac-12 Conference has appeared in 97 of the 105 Rose Bowls with USC having appeared in 34 of those games. The league owns a 50-44 record with three ties while the Big Ten is 32-38 in its 70 visits.

With its long relationship between the Pac-12 and the Big Ten, teams from those conferences have appeared in and won the most games in Rose Bowl history. The biggest winner is USC, whose 34 appearances and 25 wins far outnumber those of Michigan and Ohio State, who are tied with the second-most wins at 8 apiece.

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.
