With the Rose Bowl also being known as "The Granddaddy of Them All", is there really any need for further motivation to attend?

The Rose Bowl game has been sold out every year since 1947, with that year's contest being the first to be played under the Tournament of Roses' exclusive agreement with the Big Ten and Pac-10 conferences.

Now, as part of the Bowl Championship Series, the Rose Bowl has hosted the National Championship Game between the top two teams in the nation in 2002 and 2006, and will again host the National Championship in 2010.
