Rose Bowl Game-Bound Teams Visit Disneyland Resort
Both the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Washington Huskies have secured their spots in this year’s 2019 Rose Bowl. The game is being played in Pasadena, California which is only about an hour away from the most magical place on earth! So their first stop along the way is a traditional visit to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., on Wednesday, Dec. 26.
The teams will play in the 105th Rose Bowl Game on Tuesday, January 1, 2019. Ohio State finished the regular season with a 12-1 record and claimed the Big Ten Conference title. Meanwhile, Washington defeated Utah to win the Pac-12 Championship, finishing with a 10-3 record. Before meeting on the field, the teams will meet for their first official pre-game appearance, and only joint appearance of bowl week, at the Disneyland Resort.
