Rose Bowl Stadium

Pasadena, CA

The Rose Bowl Game, an iconic fixture in American college football, presents an exhilarating blend of athletic competition and tradition. Held annually in the majestic Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, this prestigious event typically occurs on January 1st or 2nd if New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday. The game is a testament to the prowess of college football teams and a celebration of sportsmanship and history.

This historic event was more than just a game; it was a spectacle designed to fund the cost of the Rose Parade, intertwining the spirit of sports with community celebration. The first game marked a significant moment in football history, featuring Fielding H. Yost’s powerful 1901 Michigan team, representing the East, and a formidable team from Stanford University, representing the West.

The clash was monumental, not just in the game’s scope, but in its outcome. Under Yost’s guidance, Michigan delivered a crushing defeat to Stanford, with a staggering score of 49–0, leading Stanford to withdraw in the third quarter. This victory solidified Michigan’s season with an 11–0 record and crowned them as the national champions. Interestingly, Yost had a connection to Stanford, having been their coach the previous year, adding a layer of intrigue to the match.

The overwhelming nature of this first game led to a temporary shift in the Tournament of Roses’ focus. For the next thirteen years, the event featured a variety of spectacles, including chariot races and ostrich races, instead of football. However, the allure of the gridiron was too strong to ignore for long.

Football triumphantly returned on New Year’s Day 1916, as the State College of Washington (now Washington State University) defeated Brown University. This game re-established football as a permanent fixture of the New Year’s Day celebrations and set the stage for the Rose Bowl Game to become an enduring annual tradition.
