Some of you folks in your late 60's may remember how the TV Guide use to list the Bowl games and the rosters of the teams when there were maybe 8 Bowl games. They even listed the teams pay out and the Rose Bowl was the highest at $100,000 to the winner. Orange and Sugar paid around $85,000 to $75,000. I have a 1950 Rose Bowl ticket stub and it was $5.50 to get in back then. fwiw
