The 73rd Turkey Tussle will be held on Friday, August 23, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rosebowl Football Stadium.
Because UCLA plays 2 home games in a row there would not be enough time to mend the field for their use if we play in between and player safety was a concern. In discussions between the Pasadena High School Bulldogs and John Muir High School Early College Magnet it was determined that it was more important for the students to play in the Rose Bowl than to maintain the traditional date at another venue. For all involved, including the football players and coaches, cheer squads, marching bands, journalism students, family and friends this may be the only time they would have an opportunity to experience this iconic venue.
There were many who worked behind the scenes so that the students could continue the tradition of playing in the Rose Bowl. PUSD would like to thank the Rose Bowl Stadium team for working closely with them to ensure that the Turkey Tussle will be played in the Rose Bowl and to the City of Pasadena – Public Agency and the Rose Bowl again for being its partners in this iconic tradition!
PUSD hope that the entire community… will come out and support the teams in their First Game and are looking forward to the alumni and the community joining them for this start of the 2019 season.
