The Nittany Lions and Utes meet in the “Grandaddy of Them All” on New Year’s Day on ESPN.
This year’s edition of the Rose Bowl could be the last traditional Rose Bowl played on New Year’s Day between teams from the Big Ten and Pac 12 as the sun sets on the San Gabriel Mountains in California. With the Rose Bowl hosting a College Football Playoff semifinal game next year and the CFP expanding from four teams to 12 the following year — and dramatically altering the college football landscape — the Rose Bowl may never look the same. This year’s game pits No. 11 Penn State from the Big Ten against No. 8 Utah from the Pac 12. The 2023 Rose Bowl kicks off today, Sunday, Jan. 1, at 5 p.m. ET (2 p.m. PT) and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
