Utah vs. Penn State live stream: where to watch the 2023 Rose Bowl

It’s time for the “The Granddaddy of Them All,” the most iconic game in the New Year’s Six, the Rose Bowl. The 109th annual Rose Bowl will feature the matchup between the No. 8 Utah Utes and the No. 11 Penn State Nittany Lions. This will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

Utah is riding high after winning the Pac-12 Championship against USC.

The Nittany Lions are making their first Rose Bowl appearance since 2017 and will look to end its 29-year drought without a victory in this game.

The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, Europe's most famous singing competition, returns this week. For those unfamiliar with the contest, European countries each submit one original song to be performed live by a singer or band from their respective country. The competing countries cast their votes for other countries' songs to determine a winner. The contest has been around since 1956, making it one of the longest-running annual, international televised music competitions.

The contest is usually held in the country of the winner from the previous year. However, the 2022 winner, Ukraine, will not host due to its war with Russia. The 2023 contest will instead take place in Liverpool, U.K. The semifinals will be hosted by Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Julia Sanina (The X Factor Ukraine), and Alesha Dixon (Australia's Got Talent), with Graham Norton (The Graham Norton Show) joining the trio for the final.
