Is the highest bowl game in collage football called the Rose Bowl?

No. It's the oldest bowl game (and sometimes called "the granddaddy of them all"), but it's just another bowl game. The Rose Bowl is also the name of the stadium in Pasadena, California, that hosts the Rose Bowl game. Traditionally, the Rose Bowl game matched the champions of the Big Ten conference and the Pacific Ten conference, but since the onset of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), that is no longer necessarily the case. The BCS rotates the national championship game among four stadiums -- the Rose Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl, the Orange Bowl, and the Sugar Bowl. Each year, there is a bowl game at each of those locations, plus there is an additional game held at one of those locations. The Rose Bowl therefore hosts the national championship game every fourth year (as well as the Rose Bowl game itself every year).
