2023 Rose Bowl Game: open thread

A great day of traditional college football bowls continues here in Pasadena. Follow and discuss the game here with us!

Today, the #11 Penn State Nittany Lions (10-2) face the #8 Utah Utes (10-3) in the Rose Bowl Game presented by Prudential. This is the “Grandaddy of Them All” and will hopefully make for a memorable Rose Bowl just like last year’s thriller, which also featured Utah. Penn State was all in an all-time Rose Bowl classic in 2017. Let’s hope these schools will provide us another classic today.

I’ve always had a particular soft spot for the Rose Bowl, living just six miles from the picturesque venue. Few sights in sports are as consistently breathtaking as the sun setting behind the San Gabriel Mountains in the third quarter of the Rose Bowl Game. Let’s hope this game gives us something great to see as well.
