The 104th Rose Bowl game in Pasadena, CA kicks off on New Year’s Day between the Oklahoma Sooners and Georgia Bulldogs. As with previous teams playing in the Rose Bowl, the two teams must up at Disneyland prior to the big game for some fun and magic!

First, the two teams participated in a ceremony at Disney California Adventure park, hosted by former all-pro and host of ESPN SportsNation, Marcellus Wiley. During the ceremony, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley and Georgia head coach Kirby Smart were welcomed by Disney California Adventure Vice President Patrick Finnegan in front of the rocking new attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! along with Tournament of Roses President Lance Tibbet.

Representing the University of Oklahoma were tight end Mark Andrews, offensive lineman Orlando Brown, defensive end Ogbonnia Okoronkwo and defensive back Steven Parker. Representing the University of Georgia were running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn and linebacker Roquan Smith.

After the ceremony, players and coaches from each team experienced Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and went on to enjoy even more Disneyland Resort fun.

The 104th Rose Bowl Game airs on ESPN on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018 at 5 pm EST. Oklahoma finished the regular season with a record of 12-1 and claimed the Big 12 Conference title, while Georgia defeated Auburn to win the SEC Championship, also finishing with a 12-1 record.

Who will you be cheering for? I might live in Georgia but it’s going to be Boomer Sooner for me!
