Since this game took place just 24 days after Pearl Harbor and the War Department was afraid of a possible Japanese air attack on such a prominent West Coast sporting event, the Rose Bowl for the one and only time was moved East, and rather conveniently to Durham. It wasn't enough for the Blue Devils, however, as for the second straight time an undefeated Duke team had its season ruined by the Pacific Coast League champions.
