Rose Bowletin - Week 1


It is with great honor that I am able to welcome you to the beginning of another college football season. While we had an appetizer of football last weekend, tonight... the main course begins.

It's been 242 days since the 103rd Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual, a thriller that will surely go down in history as one of the best bowl games in recent memory. But with a new season upon us, we look ahead to the 2018 College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game and the possibilities are boundless. Both USC and Penn State look primed for another Rose Bowl Game run, but teams like Ohio State, Alabama and Florida State have roses on the mind as well.

Speaking of the Crimson Tide and Seminoles, they will kickoff the season at the brand new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. It's a matchup of two of the best teams in college football and many of the best and brightest in the media believe these two teams could bookend the college football season in Atlanta by starting there in week one and ending there at the National Championship.

By now, if you've clicked the link for the Bowletin at the top of the email, you may have noticed some differences from the past. We're bringing the Rose Bowletin into the 21st century with a new format, but have no fear, we'll continue to bring you the same great college football coverage as we always have



Have a great weekend!
