Ivy League Teams in the Rose Bowl

Ivy League teams have been featured in the Rose Bowl a handful of times and their programs are very collectible.

An early 1916  program, pictured below featured Brown University v. Washington State College. At that time known as the “mid-winter floral parade” rather than the Rose Bowl.


Other Ivy League participants includ 1917 which features the University of Pennsylvania v. Oregon and in 1920 Harvard v. Oregon.

The 1934 Rose Bowl featured the Columbia Lions v. Stanford, then known as the Indians.  Its program seen below and is rare because it was one of the least attended Rose Bowl’s due to poor weather:
