CFP Hopes California Eases Restrictions at Rose Bowl

Andy Berg Headshot

The College Football Playoff is hoping to keep its tradition of hosting at least one of its two semifinal games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

As part of the effort to return to the Rose Bowl, the CFP is hoping California will ease its stadium restrictions and allow players’ families to attend the game.

"At this moment, the College Football Playoff looks forward to playing one of the two semifinal playoff games at the Rose Bowl, as scheduled," CFP executive director Bill Hancock said in a statement that was reported by ESPN. "As we move forward with our planning, we continue to hope that the Rose Bowl's appeal to government officials to allow the families of student-athletes to attend will be permitted, just as student-athlete families will be welcomed at the Sugar Bowl, the other New Year's Six games and the championship game in Miami."
