ESPNU personality, Elika Sadeghi (College Football Daily), joins us with her opinionated take on Lawry’s Beef Bowl. She was there on the sidelines for this celebrated pre-Rose Bowl game tradition. She even has a time-lapse video of her meal posted on YouTube.
The Rose Bowl arguably has the richest history of all the college bowl games. It is affectionately known as “The Granddaddy of Them All” for good reason. Celebrating its 60th year as part of The Tournament of Roses and the Rose Bowl Game is the famous Lawry’s Beef Bowl.
Lawry’s Beef Bowl was the inspired creation of Richard N. Frank, Chairman of Lawry’s Restaurants, Inc. and 2005 Rose Bowl Hall of Fame Inductee. Mr. Frank passed away earlier this year. He was a huge college football fan attending his first Rose Bowl in 1931. Over the many years since he only missed attending a mere handful of games.
