The Rose Bowl will open for the upcoming UCLA-Nebraska game.

The Pasadena City Council will discuss on Monday whether it will allow the Rose Bowl to host NFL games.

The council will consider a plan that lets the Rose Bowl roughly double the number of its large events to 25 a year. Large events are those that draw more than 20,000 people.

If approved, the NFL could take up to 13 of those events and temporarily play at the Rose Bowl, until a permanent stadium in Southern California is built. Still up in the air is whether an NFL team wants to move here.

There’s also another hurdle. The Rose Bowl is undergoing renovations and the project needs more money. The council will examine a financial plan to address the shortfall next month, according to the Pasadena Star-News.
