The historic Rose Bowl Game will not be played in its normal home due to the coronavirus pandemic. The game was forced out of town due to local officials would not allow fans in attendance.

The Democratic state is still strict on its lockdown measures. Pasadena, which has the Rose Bowl Stadium, is in Los Angeles County. Recently, that county has a stay-at-home order.

While in Texas, a Republican state, sporting events are open to the public. And they’re allowing fans in attendance. At least in some capacity.

The last time that a Rose Bowl game was not played in Pasadena, California came in 1942. The Oregon State Beavers and the Duke Blue Devils played in Durham, North Carolina.

Due to the Pearl Harbor attacks, the game was moved.

“We understand the honor and tradition that takes place in Pasadena in participating in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day,” Erica Pan, acting state health officer at the California Department of Health, recently said in a statement. “However, there are no boundaries to this virus.”
