Ohio State 10, Oregon 7

Jan. 1, 1958
Pasadena, Calif.
Attendance: 98,202

Oregon quarterback Jack Crabtree’s fourth-down pass to Ron Stover fell incomplete with 47 seconds remaining to allow Ohio State to avert one of the biggest upsets in the 44-year history of the New Year’s Day classic.

The Ducks began their last-gasp effort against the nation’s No.1-ranked Buckeyes from their own 17-yard line with 4:29 to play.

A pass interference call, a 17-yard Crabtree pass to Stover and the Oregon field general’s six-yard run advanced the ball to the Ohio State 43 before the team’s final two attempts failed to move the ball closer to victory.

Ohio State, which had captured the Big Ten Conference crown for the third time in four years, opened the game in convincing fashion, climaxing its 79-yard drive with a one-yard run by quarterback Frank Kremblas. The Buckeyes’ lone touchdown drive was kept alive by a pair of key third-down conversions.

The Ducks knotted the score at 7-7 early in the second quarter, Jim Shanley’s five-yard run capping an 80-yard march in 10 plays. Crabtree completed 10 to 17 passes for 135 yards to receive player of the game honors, becoming only the third player in the bowl’s history to earn that distinction playing for the losing team.

In addition, Stover established a Rose Bowl record for most yards receiving by a Pacific Coast Conference participant. Despite the Buckeyes’ 34-yard field goal with 14:02 left, Oregon had its chances to pull off the upset. But, Jack Morris’ three-point try from the same spot hooked to the left at the 5:20 mark in the third quarter and the Ducks coughed up the ball on the winner’s 24-yard line following Crabtree’s 23-yard completion to Stover.
