Looking back at my first ever trip to the Rose Bowl

I had been to the Rose Bowl before, but that was for a UCLA regular season game. But to go to the Rose Bowl game itself was something that I always wanted to do.

It would suck if a moment like this was played on a neutral site.

Can decision to move Cal-Stanford Big Game to Santa Clara work?

There are some mixed reactions to this potential deal to move the Big Game to new Levi’s Stadium in 2014.

There’s a lot of potential revenue to be made here and to have it at a marquee venue would definitely boost its exposure.
