The 1921 Rose Bowl, known at the time as the Tournament East-West Football Game, is a college football bowl game played on January 1, 1921. It is the seventh Rose Bowl Game. The California Golden Bears defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes by a score of 28-0 in only the second Big Ten versus Pacific Coast Conference (PCC) meeting in a Rose Bowl, the first being 1902 Rose Bowl featuring Michigan and Stanford. California's victory would stand as the only Rose Bowl win for a PCC team over a Big Ten team until the 1953 Rose Bowl.[1]

California finished the season undefeated after handing Ohio State its first loss of the season. The Bears, who outscored their opponents 510-14 for the season, would stay undefeated from 1920 until 1924. Quarterback Harold Muller was named Player of the Game after he completed a 53-yard touchdown pass to Brodie Stephens after receiving a toss from Pesky Sprott. Sprott would score two touchdowns after carrying the ball 20 times for 90 yards.

Ohio State All-American Gaylord Stinchcomb rushed for 82 yards.
