1921 – 1922 WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE
California vs. Washington and Jefferson
Last game played in Tournament Park – 1922
1922 – California 0 Washington & Jefferson 0
California brings another undefeated season (9-0) to Pasadena but is held to a 0-0 tie by Washington and Jefferson (10-0). Earl “Greasy” Neale’s Presidents never make a substitution in outplaying favored Cal from the moment they wipe mud on the jersey of carbuncle-plagued Harold “Brick” Muller. Cal doesn’t complete a pass and is held to 49 yards rushing. Russell Stein and Erick Erickson are standouts in the final game played in Tournament Park as Pasadena finances and builds a 57,000 seat stadium in Arroyo Seco for $272,198. Archie Nisbet’s 12 punts for 407 yards save California.
The 1921 football team went down in history as the most successful athletic team in the school’s illustrious history as the Presidents advanced to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. W&J battled the mighty California Golden Bears to the only scoreless tie in Rose Bowl history. Playing
with just 11 men, the Presidents held California to two first downs and set four Rose Bowl records.
