Orange Bowl Game

Orange Bowl Game

January 1
One of the older post-season college football games, first played in 1935, in which the two top teams meet at the 75,521-seat LandShark Stadium in Miami, Florida, to play for the national championship every four years. Top teams also contend during the years in which the national championship is determined in one of the other three bowl cities—Pasadena, California's Rose Bowl, New Orleans, Louisiana's Sugar Bowl, and Phoenix, Arizona's Fiesta Bowl—which alternately host the biggest college football game of the year.
The game is preceded by a New Year's Eve Orange Bowl Parade along Biscayne Boulevard. A parade more on the satirical side is the King Mango Strut held each year near Jan. 1 in Coconut Grove, Florida.
