Vegas Odds On Rose Bowl 2014
The Vegas Odds on Rose Bowl participants each year are some of the most anticipated numbers in all of football. That is because the oldest and most prestigious NCAA College Football Bowl game, nicknamed "The Grandaddy of Them All", always plays host to two of the most powerful teams in Division I football. Almost always played on New Year's Day at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, the game was first played in 1902 and has been played every year since 1916. And incredibly, since 1945 the Rose Bowl annually has supported the highest attendance of any college football game. As part of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) the Rose Bowl hosts one of the four BCS Bowl Games every year, as well as also hosting the BCS National Championship Game every four years. The Rose Bowl during current BCS contractual obligations is played between the Big Ten and PAC 12 Conference Champions, unless they are already slotted for the BCS National Championship game.
About the Rose Bowl
College football lovers have come to expect great football in the most important college bowl games on January 1 as they nurse their New Year's hangovers. That tradition started with the Rose Bowl in 1902 which was originally named the "Tournament East-West football game." The game was so lopsided talent-wise in the early years (Stanford actually quit in the third quarter when playing Michigan in the inaugural 49 – 0 victory for the Wolverines) the Tournament of Roses officials actually added ostrich races, chariot races and other events as part of the game to keep the fans happy. Thus was born the New Year's Day Tournament of Roses Parade tradition, of which the Rose Bowl is still a big part.
When a college football fan thinks about the Rose Bowl, two teams immediately come to mind - the University of Michigan and the University of Southern California. From that initial appearance in 1902, the Wolverines have played an important part in this crucial college football contest. Appearing in 20 Rose Bowl's with 8 wins, Big Blue last made it to the Rose Bowl in 2007 where they lost to the Trojans of USC, who have an unbelievable 24 wins in 32 Rose Bowl appearances, the only team with more appearances and wins than Michigan.
The University of Washington and Ohio State University each have 14 appearances and 7 championships, with Stanford and UCLA next in line with 12 appearances apiece and 5 Rose Bowl championships. How closely contested is the Rose Bowl according to conference? Vegas Odds On Rose Bowl conference participants generally reflect the fact that the PAC 12 is 47 - 45 in 92 appearances, and the Big Ten is 30 - 37 in the 67 Rose Bowls they have played. And recently the competition has been much tighter than in the founding years of this fan favorite college bowl game.
In the eight years from 2005 to 2012, the Rose Bowl average margin of victory has been barely 10 points, which is exceptionally low considering the 32 point shall lacking USC put on the University of Illinois in the 2008 game with a score of 49 to 17. USC won 4 Rose Bowl games in the six years from 2004 to 2009, but hasn't been to a Rose Bowl since. And Michigan has not played in a Rose Bowl since losing to USC in 2007. Can these two perennial college powerhouses return to their former Rose Bowl glory that helped create the amazing tradition The Granddaddy of Them All still offers college football fans today? In the hotly contested game of NCAA Division I football there are no guarantees, except that the Rose Bowl will always be considered one of the biggest games of the entire college football season.
