1915 National Championship

Recently there has been a case made about Washington State's claim to the 1915 National Championship. The Washington State Warriors that won the 1915 Rose Bowl finishing 10-0 and outscored its opponents 204-10 was in fact one of four teams that went undefeated that year, the other three being Cornell University (currently recognized as the 1915 champions), the University of Pittsburgh, and rival University of Washington, since the two did not play that year. In 1915 Washington State College was awarded the opportunity to play in Rose Bowl and was set to play Brown University, which had lost only one game, to Harvard University (who in turn lost to Cornell 10-0) by a score of 16-7. Cornell and Pitt at that time were busy bickering over where the site of their football game would take place and eventually the season had come to an end before a decision could be made. Washington State wound up beating Brown in the Rose Bowl 14-0 which garnered huge headlines around the country at that time. However a 1915 national championship was never awarded until 1935 when a Princeton University graduate submitted the first national polling of that season, quite disputed because in previous seasons he claimed that Princeton had won 22 National championships before 1933. However, the poll was acknowledged and Cornell was given the championship twenty years after the 1915 season. Recently, experts have come up with evidence that could include Washington State in that circle of National Champions. One example is that a comparison of points scored between teams Washington State played and teams Cornell played (some of which played each other in the postseason) actually favors Washington State. Another was that while Cornell and Pittsburgh never actually played a postseason game, Washington State did in fact play a powerhouse East Coast team and defeated them soundly.
