Venue: NCAA Rose Bowl Game
When: Jan. 2, 2017 / 5:00 pm ET / ESPN
Where: Rose Bowl - Pasadena, CA
Who: Penn State vs. USC
If you can't play in the College Football Playoff, it's not a terrible consolation prize to be sent to the Rose Bowl instead. After all, the duel in Pasadena is known as the "Granddaddy of Them All" for a reason, and Big Ten and Pac-12 teams fought for years for the right to step foot into the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. The 2017 edition of the game is actually being played on January 2, 2017 at the Rose Bowl Stadium, instead of January 1, due to the fact that New Year's Day is on a Sunday and dominated by the NFL.
The Penn State Nittany Lions though, can't help but be at least a little disappointed from the standpoint that they were left out of the CFP this year after a great 11-2 campaign that included the Big Ten championship, but we're going to see just how motivated this team is to play in the Rose Bowl against the USC Trojans. The Men of Troy played better ball than almost anyone in the nation down the stretch, and many will tell you that the team that is best suited to at least stand toe-to-toe with Alabama right now would be USC.

Well you've come to the right place, as we get set to preview each college bowl and picks on this year's Rose Bowl game.

Opening Line: USC -6.5
Preview: Money has continued to flow in on the Auburn Tigers as their game against the Oklahoma Sooners has gotten closer to kickoff. Sharps believe that Auburn is underrated because of its 8-4 record in the regular season as two of those losses came at the hands of the top two teams in the playoff. There is also a perception that Oklahoma is overrated after a running through a weak Big 12 and that its effort against Houston and Ohio State is more indicative as to what type of team this is.

With a history dating back all the way to 1902, the Rose Bowl truly is “The Granddaddy of Them All.” The game traditionally matches up one of the top teams from the Big Ten Conference with a peer from the Pac-12 Conference.

The Rose Bowl, formally Pasadena Tournament of Roses is the oldest college football bowl game in American history. In 1897, the city of Pasadena purchased ten acres of land located in the Arroyo Seco area of Pasadena, CA. This site turned out to be exactly what the Tournament of Roses Association needed.
In 1921, it was decided that building should commence, and the structure was built with the south end open, giving the stadium a "horseshoe" shape.
The design of the stadium was intended to accommodate as many patrons as possible, sitting close to the action. The first portion of the stadium was completed for less money than had been budgeted, and the seating capacity at the time was 57,000.
The Tournament financed the project by offering ten-year subscription tickets for $100 each. Once it was completed, it was deeded to the city of Pasadena.
Local newspaper reporter Harlan "Dusty" Hall, who also served as the Tournament's press agent, came up with the name "Rose Bowl" for the stadium, and on January 1, 1923, the Tournament held its first football game there.
The Rose Bowl, known as The Granddaddy of All Bowl Games, has been one of football top sports betting events since 1947. That year's contest was the first game played under the Tournament's exclusive agreement with the Big Ten and Pacific Coast Conferences. (The Pacific Coast Conference's name was changed to Pacific-8 in 1968, and to Pacific-l0 in 1978.)
The 1998 Rose Bowl Game was the 52nd anniversary of that agreement, the longest standing tradition of any collegiate conference and a bowl association.
For many years the game was televised by NBC; since 1988 it has aired on ABC. In 1998, the game began being known as The Rose Bowl Game presented by AT&T and in 2002 as The Rose Bowl Game presented by PlayStation 2.
Since 2005, when the agreement with Sony expired, the BCS Rose Bowl game has been Presented by Vizio.
