Tournament of Roses honors 100th Rose Bowl Game with new logo, trophy

The Rose Bowl will ring in New Year's Day with an extra touch of class in 2014. In honor of "The Granddaddy of Them All" becoming the first postseason bowl to reach 100 games, the Tournament of Roses has unveiled a new logo to commemorate the milestone. The visual mark incorporates aspects of the host city, Pasadena, including the nearby San Gabriel Mountains and design elements inspired by local architecture.

The Rose Bowl Game trophy also will get a makeover for the occasion, as the updated version of the Leishman Trophy, created by Tiffany and Co., will include 24-karat gold vermeil accents along a base that supports a football made out of sterling silver.

The agreement tying the Rose Bowl to the Pac-12 and Big Ten Conferences dates back to 1946. It's the longest-standing arrangement between a postseason bowl game and two major collegiate conferences in the country, hence the nickname "The Granddaddy of Them All." The next meeting between the Pac-12 and Big Ten champions will be on January 1, 2014. Stanford won the latest edition of the Rose Bowl back in January, defeating the Wisconsin Badgers 20-14.
