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.

1. Collegiate = belonging to a college. Right?

2. What do these words "oldest" and "postseason" mean exactly?

I'm weak in English. Thank you.

    1.

    ''Collegiate'' means that each team is made up of students from the same college.

    2.

    ''Oldest'' means that these games have been going for the longest .. and so they were ''the first ones'' to be played.

    'Post-season'' .. ''Post'' means ''after'' .. so these games take place ''after the usual football season timetable has been completed''.

    If they took place ''before'' then they would be ''Pre-season''.

    Collegiate = players made up from the same college

    Oldest = in this sense, it means the game which is played annually, was first played before any other college bowl game

    Post season = after the usual gridiron game has been played

    And for info

    Football = a game with steroid obsessed jocks, kick once every 5 or so minutes, but spend the majority of the game carrying or throwing an prolate spheroid shaped piece of leather filled with air to the end line while other players, all wearing a phenomenal amount of padding try to basically obliterate them and stop them going forward. I know what you are thinking, a better name that's more descriptive would have been hand ball, gridiron or eggball, but it's America....
