ROSE BOWL Should Be Interesting this year.

My eyes will be glued to that BOWL game. The 2 teams going should have No more than 2 Losses. Or even 1, should both UTAH and Winner between Baylor/OU get Left Out of Playoff. This would be the year, I'd Not go with a BIG 10 Team should Georgia Win the $ec and get in. Let's say UTAH or OU finish 5, with the other 6, I'd have those 2 meet in PASADENA. Period! If I'm the Rose Bowl Committee, and OU or Baylor get In the Playoff over UTAH, Only then would I go with BIG TEN and in this case, I'd select MINNESOTA with only 2 Losses vs. WISCONSIN who would have 3 L's on the season. Even though Wisconsin beat them. A ROSE Bowl between UTAH and OU might be the most watched game on JAN given those 2 were Left Out (given Georgia Wins $ec Con game). UTES and SOONERS would draw Interest given UTAH would be making their 1st ever Rose Bowl appearance while OU Travels well, and shows up for most January Day NY6 Bowl games. Or, should the Committee take OU for the Playoff, a Matchup between UTAH and BAYLOR or UTAH vs Minnesota would also be Interesting. You also have the possibility of OREGON, should they beat UTAH, they would play either OU/ Baylor Winner, or Minnesota in the Rose Bowl. Either way, this years PLayoff Madness, has Opened the door for the ROSE BOWL to get much better ratings than these past years. Thoughts. Last edited: Dec 3, 2019 1988Trojan and redeye like this.
