Rose Bowl Prediction

The numbers that Michigan put up during the regular season were impressive, but if you look at their schedule you will not be impressed. You can make a case the Wolverines only played two quality opponents all season in Ohio State and Penn State. And no, Iowa was not a quality opponent, as the Hawkeyes have no offense. The Wolverines just got past Ohio State and did just enough to beat Penn State. Alabama has played a far tougher schedule and they are coming off perhaps the best win of the season of any team, as they beat the two-time defending champion Georgia Bulldogs. The Crimson Tide also have Nick Saban, who seemingly wins every big game. The Crimson Tide are the pick in this game.

Rose Bowl Format

The Rose Bowl began in 1916, with the matchup hosting schools from the Big Ten and Pac-12 conferences. This traditional matchup ended when the bowl started to participate in the championship and semifinal matchups. During years the Rose Bowl is not used as a venue for the postseason, then it reverts to the original bowl tie-ins. This game takes place at the Rose Bowl in 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.

The 2023 Rose Bowl saw Penn State winning 35-21 over Utah. Sean Clifford hit KeAndre Lambert-Smith on an 88-yard TD pass, the longest in Rose Bowl history. The Nittany Lions also got an 87-yard TD run from Nicholas Singleton. Utah lost starting quarterback Cameron Rising to injury in the third quarter.

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.
