This stadium is one of the most scenic spots in sports and has housed some of the greatest moments in college football history, starting with the annual Rose Bowl Game.
"The Grandaddy of Them All" has been played every Jan. 1 since 1923 (except when New Year's Day falls on Sunday, and the game is moved to Jan. 2, and in 1942, when the game was moved to Duke in Durham, N.C., due to security concerns after Pearl Harbor).
In 1998, the Rose Bowl became part of the Bowl Championship Series and now is part of the College Football Playoff six-bowl rotation.
The stadium holds 91,000 today, down from its previous 102,000. But some things never change, like the tailgate experience, which remains one of a kind. Fans still gather early in the morning and set up on the lawn parking outside the stadium to prepare for one of the biggest college football games of the year.
In addition, the UCLA Bruins play their home football games here, and the multipurpose stadium has hosted five Super Bowls, two FIFA World Cup Finals (men's and women's), concerts and more.
