The 1921 college football season had no clear-cut champion, with the Official NCAA Division I Football Records Book listing California Golden Bears, Cornell Big Red, Iowa Hawkeyes, Lafayette Leopards, and Washington & Jefferson Presidents as champions.[2] Only California, Cornell, and Lafayette claim national championships for the 1921 season.

Regular seasonEdit

A historical highlight of the regular season was the 1921 West Virginia vs. Pittsburgh football game, the first college footbal game to be broadcast live on radio.[3] Today, college football on radio is common for nearly every game in every division.

Rose BowlEdit

In the 1922 Rose Bowl, the heavily-favored California Golden Bears played Washington & Jefferson to a scoreless tie. The game holds several distinctions including being the only scoreless Rose Bowl game, the first tie in a Rose Bowl, the first African-American quarterback to play in the Rose Bowl (Charlie West from Washington & Jefferson), the first freshman to play in a Rose Bowl (Herb Kopf of Washington and Jefferson), the last Rose Bowl to be played at Tournament Park, and the smallest school (Washington & Jefferson College had only 450 students at the time) to ever play in a Rose Bowl.[4][5]
