HISTORY OF THE ROSE BOWL GAME

The first Tournament of Roses football game, which was the first post-season football game in the nation, was staged at Tournament Park on January 1, 1902. The game matched the West Coast’s Stanford against Midwestern Michigan. (The teams would later become members of today’s Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences, respectively.) Michigan routed Stanford, 49-0, prompting the football contest to be replaced with Roman-style chariot races inspired by the literary classic Ben-Hur. Football was permanently reinstated as part of the Tournament’s traditions in 1916.

The exclusive agreement among the Tournament of Roses Association, the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference was born in 1946, and the first game played under the agreement took place on January 1, 1947. The pact is the oldest intercollegiate postseason bowl agreement between two major conferences in the United States.

This collegiate classic has been the occasion of many firsts. The Rose Bowl Game was the first local radio broadcast of an East-West bowl game in 1926, the first transcontinental radio broadcast of a sporting event in 1927, the first local telecast of a college football game in 1948, the first national telecast of a college football game in 1952, the first coast-to-coast color telecast of a collegiate football game in 1962, and the first College Football Playoff Semifinal in 2015.

  • 1902-Rose-Bowl-Game-History

    1902

    The first Rose Bowl Game is played at Tournament Park. The University of Michigan routs Stanford University 49–0. As the crowd of spectators arrives for the game, it becomes apparent that the 1,000 seats are not enough. The mob of 8,500 creates a stampede. No one is seriously injured. But because of the over-excitement of the crowd and the lopsided score (in a time when touchdowns were worth five points), football is abandoned on New Year’s Day until 1916.
  • 1916-Rose-Bowl-Game-History

    1916

    College football returns to Pasadena. Washington State beats Brown, 14-0, in the second Rose Bowl Game at Tournament Park.
  • 1923-Rose-Bowl-Game-History

    First Rose Bowl Game held in the Rose Bowl Stadium. The horseshoe shaped stadium held 57,000 and was deeded to the city of Pasadena by the Tournament of Roses Association. USC beat Penn State, 14-3.

  • 1927-Rose-Bowl-Game-History

    1927

    The Rose Bowl Game becomes the first national radio broadcast of a sporting event. Stanford and Alabama tie, 7-7, and both schools are named National Champions.
  • 1942-Rose-Bowl-Game-History

    1942

    In the first and only Rose Bowl Game played outside of Pasadena, Oregon State defeats Duke 20–16 in Durham, N.C., because of wartime restrictions on the West Coast.
  • 1946-Rose-Bowl-Game-History

    1946

    What is now the Big Ten and Pac-12 strike an agreement with the Tournament of Roses to have the champions of each conference play every year in the Rose Bowl Game, the first agreement of it’s kind. On January 1, 1947, Illinois defeated UCLA, 45-17.
