The first Rose Bowl Game, called the "East-West" tournament exhibition football game was sponsored by the Rose Bowl in 1901. It was designed as a way to not only showcase the relatively new and budding sport of gridiron football, but also as a way to entice easterners to visit Pasadena for the Tournament of Roses.
The game became known as the Rose Bowl Game because of the stadium built to host the game, the Rose Bowl. The Rose Bowl was named for the annual Tournament of Roses held in Pasadena, California since 1895. The Tournament was designed as a tourist attraction to showcase Southern California's beautiful wintertime weather to entice residents of colder climates to vacation in southern California each winter to boost the economy.
It is important to note that the phrase "Rose Bowl" refers to the stadium and "Rose Bowl Game" refers to the football event held at the stadium each January 1st.
A local newspaperman suggested they plant a few roses around the stadium, and so it was called the rose bowl
No. It's the oldest bowl game (and sometimes called "the granddaddy of them all"), but it's just another bowl game. The Rose Bowl is also the name of the stadium in Pasadena, California, that hosts the Rose Bowl game. Traditionally, the Rose Bowl game matched the champions of the Big Ten conference and the Pacific Ten conference, but since the onset of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), that is no longer necessarily the case. The BCS rotates the national championship game among four stadiums -- the Rose Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl, the Orange Bowl, and the Sugar Bowl. Each year, there is a bowl game at each of those locations, plus there is an additional game held at one of those locations. The Rose Bowl therefore hosts the national championship game every fourth year (as well as the Rose Bowl game itself every year).
