The 1917 Tournament East-West Football Game (The Rose Bowl). Webfoots 14, Quakers 0.

The Oregon Webfoots defeated the Penn Quakers by the score of 14–0 in the Third Tournament East West Football Game, which we know as the Rose Bowl.

Not being a football fan, I'm fairly amazed, frankly, the Rose Bowl is that old, but it is.

The game was scoreless until the third quarter when Oregon scored on a forward pass.  It did again, with a short one yard to go, in the fourth quarter.
