In the early (pre-and early-NFL) days of American football, the Rose Bowl was the most nationally prominent and important contest. Over the years it featured such football legends as George Halas (1919), Lou Little (1917), Elmer Layden (1925), Bert Bell (1917), Bob Waterfield (1943), Don Huston (1935) and many others.
