The 1952 Rose Bowl was a college football bowl game played on January 1, 1952 at the end of the 1951 college football season. It was the 38th Rose Bowl Game. It holds the distinction of being the first nationally televised college football game.

Stanford led Illinois 7 to 6 on a Harry Hugasian touchdown until late in the third quarter. Illinois then scored 34 consecutive points including 27 points in the 4th quarter to defeat Stanford 40 to 7.[1] Illinois running back Bill Tate rushed for 150 yards and 2 touchdowns[2] leading Illinois to 434 yards of total offense. All-American Johnny Karras rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown for Illinois. It was the second Rose Bowl win for Illinois coach Ray Eliot. Stanford coach Chuck Taylor became the first man to ever be both a player and coach in the Rose Bowl, having played as one of Stanford's undefeated Wow Boys in the 1941 Rose Bowl.[3]
