Everyone who is a fan of college football also keeps track of the Rose Bowl, which is an interesting competition between the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference. This coming round, we're planning to watch the Rose Bowl Game online, and we invite you to do the same.

The Rose Bowl may be played between college football teams, but it's actually the oldest Bowl games in the US. In fact, it's even nicknamed "The Granddaddy of Them All" after being played for the first time in 1902 as the Tournament East-West football game. For more than half a century it has been the highest attended college football bowl game.

Traditionally, the Rose Bowl game hosts the conference champions from the Big Ten and Pac-12 Conferences and it takes place on January 1st. When New Year's Day falls on a Sunday, the game is played on Monday, January 2nd.

When and Where to Watch the Rose Bowl?

The upcoming Rose Bowl Game is scheduled for January 1st, 2020. The kickoff is set for 5 PM EST and it will be one of the 2019-2020 bowl games concluding the 2019 FBS football season.

Who Is Broadcasting the Rose Bowl Game?

The Rose Bowl Game will be broadcast by ESPN, so it should be pretty easy to watch the game. Although this hasn't been confirmed yet, by looking at previous years, the Rose Bowl Game will have commentary from Chris Fowler for play-by-play, Kirk Herbstreit will take on the role of color commentator, while the sideline reporters will be Maria Taylor and Tom Rinaldi.

It is unclear at this point if the ESPN+ platform will also stream the game or not, but we'll update when we know more.
