1964 Rose Bowl Program



Illinois made its first appearance in Pasadena in 12 years, led by linebacker Dick Butkus and fullback Jim Grabowski. Illinois trailed 7-0 before Jim Plankenhorn's 32-yard field goal with one second remaining in the first half put the Fighting Illini on the scoreboard. Illinois came out strong in the second half, grinding out touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters to wear down the Huskies, 17-7. Grabowski earned MVP honors, gaining 125 yards and scoring one touchdown.

Previously unbeaten, #2 Illinois had an 8-7 lead with minutes left in a game at home against Michigan, when a fumble gave the Wolverines the ball 11 yards from goal, setting up Mel Anthony's winning score for a 14-8 upset.

I do believe the illini would have won the national championship against Texas but never happened bummer.

63 was a good year for Chicago sports with these teams winning there championships

Loyola (Illinois) wins 60-58 over Cincinnati-Ncaa BB champs
Huskies (N.Illinois) 21-14 victory over SW Missouri State- College Division  
Da bears crushing Green Bay twice they went on to win the NFL championship against NY gmen
