The 1946 season saw the first of 55 consecutive Rose Bowl matchups between the champions of the Big Nine (later the Big Ten) and what was then known at the Pacific Coast Conference. The Illini had the honor of being the first Big Nine rep, and they made the most of it, annihilating a previously unbeaten UCLA team, and setting the stage for nearly two decades of Big Nine / Big Ten domination of the event.
