College football and RVs are a wonderful match. They are a wonderful way to get to the game, a great and inexpensive place to stay when you get there, and for those stadiums that allow it, a great way to tailgate.
With Bowl season in full swing we thought that we would highlight an RV trip to two of the big ones…
The Rose Bowl
The Rose Bowl is the oldest of all of the bowl games and a must see at least once event for any rabid college football fan. On January 1, 2011 the number 5 BCS ranked Wisconsin Badgers will square off against the number 3 BCS ranked TCU Horned Frogs at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California.
For the RV traveler, one- to three-day RV parking for the Tournament of Roses parade and Rose Bowl Game is provided by Sharp Seating. A shuttle will operate from 10 a.m. until approximately two hours after the game. Motorhome parking at the stadium is very limited and available on a first come first served basis.
The BCS Championship Game
This year the BCS Championship Game will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Playing in this year’s game are two high-scoring, undefeated powerhouses – the Oregon Ducks (12-0) from the Pac-10 and the Auburn Tigers (13-0) from the SEC. With two high-powered offenses, the game could be a high scoring affair.
While the stadium has limited parking for “oversized” vehicles, there are several RV parks within 25 minutes of the stadium that you may wish to consider making your home base:
…and if you need an RV for either of these two events, our Santa Fe Springs RV Rental location can help you out for the Rose Bowl and our Phoenix RV Rental location can help you out for the BCS championship game…
