The 1917 Rose Bowl, known at the time as the Tournament East-West Football Game, was a college football bowl game played on Jan 1, 1917. It was the 3rd Rose Bowl Game. The Oregon Ducks defeated the Penn Quakers by a score of 14–0. This remains the last, and to date, only Rose Bowl win ever for the Ducks. Oregon team captain John Beckett was named the Rose Bowl Player of the Game when the award was created in 1953 and selections were made retroactively.
