On January 1, 1942, Duke and Oregon State played the Rose Bowl in Durham, NC, the first time the Rose Bowl had ever been played outside of Pasadena. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt urged extra caution for a potential second attack along the West Coast, prompting the Rose Bowl to get canceled – until Duke stepped in and offered to host the game on campus! #Duke100
