Perhaps the most famous stadium in college football, the Rose Bowl has been the site of many historical sporting events. By the late 1800s the City of Pasadena begin their search for land to build a stadium. In 1897, a parcel of land was bought and two decades later, the Tournament of Roses Association decided it was time to build a stadium. Before the construction of the Rose Bowl, the annual Rose Bowl game was played at Tournament Park, where temporary stands were constructed each year for the game. Construction on the stadium began in the early 1920s and was complete in 1922. Built just for football, the first game played at the Rose Bowl was on October 28, 1922 when Cal beat USC. The Rose Bowl originally had a seating capacity of 57,000 in a horseshoe configuration. On January 1, 1923 the first Rose Bowl Game was played when USC beat Penn State.

The first of several expansions to the Rose Bowl was in 1929 when the stadium was enclosed on the south end increasing the capacity to 76,000. Three years later the capacity increased again to 86,000 and to just over 100,000 in 1949. In 1982, the UCLA Bruins made their debut at the Rose Bowl. Since then, it has remained the Bruins home and the site of many events. In the past decade the  Rose Bowl has seen several improvements including new lights, a new three story press box, a video/scoreboard, and in 1998 individual chairs replaced the bleachers between the endzones. With its recent renovations, today the Rose Bowl has a capacity of 91,136. The main one tier grandstand encloses the entire playing field. In addition to hosting numerous college football games over the years, the Rose Bowl has been home of the Super Bowl and the World Cup. Of course it is most famous for hosting the Rose Bowl each year on New Years Day. To be completed by the 100th Rose Bowl and the BCS title game in 2014, the plan calls for widening tunnels and access aisles, a new retro 1940s style scoreboard on the south endzone, a new HD videoboard on the north endzone and an expansion of the luxury seating to 2,500.
