Can you help me with English please?

The Rose Bowl, which takes places on New Year’s Day, is the oldest postseason collegiate football game in the United States.

I checked online about this. It was founded in 1922, but it is not the oldest, so why it is said this word "oldest" in this sense???

Thank you.

    "Known as “The Granddaddy of Them All,” the Rose Bowl Game is the oldest of America's college football postseason bowl games, first played as the "Tournament East–West football game" at Tournament Park on Jan. 1, 1902 and played annually since 1916." You are probably getting confused with this:  "The exclusive agreement among the Tournament of Roses Association, the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference was born in 1946, and the first game played under the agreement took place on January 1, 1947. The pact is the oldest intercollegiate postseason bowl agreement between two major conferences in the United States."
