The Granddaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl Game, is the first post-season collegiate bowl game. It was known as the East-West Game until the Rose Bowl Stadium opened in 1923. The first game was played in 1902, but U. Michigan trounced Stanford so badly (49-0) that the founders turned to other post-parade entertainment until 1916.
