I’ve never been more proud of a group of people…We have a lot of respect for our opponent. The respect we have for this conference is high. (Looking ahead to the Rose Bowl) I’m going to make sure they enjoy it. #GoBucks pic.twitter.com/2OZq6uGaJ3

Both teams have made 15 appearances in the Rose Bowl.
The Rose Bowl is nicknamed “The Granddaddy of Them All” because it is the oldest bowl game and has been played since 1902.
The famed Tournament of Roses parade takes place before the game.
It features floats decorated in flowers.
