Rose Bowl Game Presented by Vizio Betting OddsCollege Football Betting Online: Affectionately termed the Granddaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl has been around longer than any college bowl game and has been played annually since 1916. The game has played to the now Pac-12 and Big Ten Conferences since its early years and has been dominated by USC, which has appeared in 34 of the matchups. The UCLA Bruins call Rose Bowl Stadium home during the regular season, but they haven’t appeared in the Bowl game in nearly two decades.

The 2017 Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual will take place on Monday, January 1, 2018 from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. ESPN will televise the CFP semifinal matchup starting at 5 p.m. ET.

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 to raise money for the Rose Parade. 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 what is now the 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. Oregon defeated Florida State in the 2014 season playing and the Rose Bowl will host a semifinal tilt for the second time with the 2017 season game. 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.

*1921, 1923 and 1926 Rose Bowls ended in a tie

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 attempt 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 league’s 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 103 Rose Bowls with USC having appeared in 34 of those games. The league owns a 50-43 record with three ties.

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 last season’s thrilling 52-49 comeback win over Penn State.

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.
