Rose Bowl Rules Change

Rose Bowl Rules Change
July 27, 2009 by Allison Boyer

For the first time ever, teams outside of the Pac-10 and Big Ten have a good chance of playing in the Rose Bowl, the granddaddy of all of the BCS bowls, according to reports. Well, maybe “good” is a strong word, but considering that both conferences have championship contenders most years, it is at least a possibility.

Under the new rule, which will be in effect from 2010 to 2013, if the Pac-10 or Big Ten has their conference champion playing in the National Championship game, the Rose Bowl must take a non-BCS team, if one qualifies. Otherwise, the game will still be Pac-10 versus Big Ten.

As it should be.

What? I’m a purist when it comes to the Rose Bowl.
