Why are we not playing now and Rose Bowl at 8:45? It would be 5:45 there.


Should have been like a 3pm and 7pm game

I have to leave for work immediately after the game for at least a 12 hour shift. Fingers crossed we win, it'll make the shift much easier to get thru.

I wish they had the Sugar Bowl at 3:30 and the Rose at 7:00.

Because the Rose Bowl committee gets what they want. They want the game to end as the sunsets or some b s.

...prime time.

This may be reason. They know the ratings will be higher.

Or, maybe they alternate the 2-3/1-4 games.

Last year the 1-4 game was first and the 2-3 game was late. IDK, just a thought.

Nope not the reason. The Rose bowl has a contract to be on New Year’s Day at 5 pm eastern and the sugar bowl has a contract to be on New Year’s Day after the Rose bowl. These games have been in these time slots for years and will be for many more years.


This is New Year's Day. Anything after 11 am is prime time.

The game won't actually kick off until well after 9.

There's something in these hills.


I heard they scheduled the West coast game earlier

so those teams could fly back home tonight.

B/c Clemson and Alabama were so close to the Sugar, this would make travel time, more importantly, arrival time close for both teams playing next week.

No, the Rosebowl has always kicked off around this time. Same for the Sugar, that game is always super late.


Because they want us to watch it and they want ratings*****
