UCLA BRUINS (The Rose Bowl)
If you don’t know about Rose Bowl stadium, you don’t know football. Perhaps the premier venue in all of college football, Rose Bowl stadium is the mecca of one of the long-lasting traditions of the game, which is of course, The annual Rose Bowl Game. It also serves as the home field for the UCLA Bruins.
If you’ve been paying attention to such things, you already know that Rose Bowl stadium has been recently renovated with plush amenities and plenty of subtle sizzle. The new press box is amazing and the restoration of the field hedging is also gorgeous. A new video board, some reductions and new signs around the rim of the stadium and a new field all make for one of the cleanest and prettiest venues in the country.
Don’t expect any more renovations in the near future but it’s not really necessary anyway. Of course the downside for UCLA is that they can’t ever sell the place out because it’s so big, which can create less of a home field advantage than some other teams enjoy, but the trade-off is pretty sweet.
