The 1942 Rose Bowl was the 28th Rose Bowl game. Originally scheduled to be played in the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, it was moved to Durham, North Carolina, due to fears about an attack by the Japanese on the West Coast of the United States following the attack on Pearl Harbor. The United States government prohibited large public gatherings on the West Coast of the United States for the duration of the war; the first significant canceled event was the Rose Bowl Game scheduled for New Year's Day, 1942.
