The Rose Bowl, one of the nation’s most famous college football stadiums is currently in its 19th season as the home of the UCLA Bruin football team.

The Bruins had their first major period of success in the 1950s, under head coach Henry Russell Sanders. He led the Bruins to the Coaches’ Poll national championship in 1954, three conference championships, and an overall record of 66–19–1 in nine years.
During the tenure of Terry Donahue in the 1980s and 1990s, the Bruins compiled a 151–74–8 record, including 13 bowl games and an NCAA record eight straight bowl wins.
There have been 28 first round picks in the NFL Draft, 30 consensus All-Americans, and multiple major award winners, including Heisman winner Gary Beban.
Currently, the UCLA Bruins main rival is the USC Trojans.
