More on The Rose Bowl
Construction completed in 1922
This iconic stadium is home to the oldest bowl game in the country. It was constructed in the early 1920s after the Pasadena (Calif.) Valley Hunt Club chose to host a Jan. 1 event highlighted by a parade and games. Now, what started with events such as the "tourney of rings" and ostrich and chariot races has led to the well-known Tournament of Roses parade and the annual bowl game that pits the Big Ten champion against the top team from the Pac-12 (unless these teams play in the BCS title game). Since 1982, UCLA has played its home games at the stadium, which has played host to four Super Bowls and was used for portions of the 1932 and 1984 Olympics. In 2010, the Rose Bowl hosted two bowl games, the traditional Rose Bowl and the BCS National Championship Game, and this year's contest, held on Jan. 1, will be the 100th in the storied bowl's history.
