Rose Bowl Facts and Information
In 1902, the Tournament of Roses® Association decided to improve the day's festivities by adding a football game. Stanford University accepted the request to take on the powerhouse University of Michigan , but the west coast team was crushed 49-0 and gave up in the third quarter. The lopsided score encouraged the Tournament to give up football in favor of Roman-style chariot races.
In 1916, football returned to stay and the crowds soon outgrew the stands in Tournament Park . William L. Leishman, the Tournament's 1920 President, envisioned a stadium similar to the Yale Bowl, the first huge modern football stadium. He enlisted the help of designer Myron Hunt and builder William A Taylor, and mutually they made plans for a stadium in Pasadena 's Arroyo Seco area.
