The Rose Bowl Game, themed Dreams Come True, is a contractual sell-out, with 64,500 tickets allocated to the participating teams and conferences. The remaining tickets go to the Tournament of Roses members, sponsors, City of Pasadena residents, and the general public.
A USAFB-2 of the 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base may perform a fly-over at the end of the National Anthem before the game, if the Air Force lifts the ban on fly-overs due to the sequestration.
Teams playing in the Rose Bowl game are usually the winners of the Pacific-12 and Big Ten conference championship games, unless one team (or both teams) play in the BCS National Championship game. The teams will be officially selected by the football committee of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association on Selection Sunday on December 8, 2013. Both teams will hold their pre-game practices at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
