This was the right call, and while nobody is happy about it, moving the game out of CA had to be done if fans were going to be banned.
You simply can’t play a college football playoff game in an empty stadium if there are other options. It’s a horrible look.
Now, that problem has been taken care of, and the Rose Bowl is headed to Texas.
Here’s the official statement announcing #RoseBowl move from Pasadena to Dallas.
