Illinois Memorial Stadium
The first game played at the new stadium was against the University of Chicago. Although this private university no longer competes in football, Chicago was one of the leading teams in the nation and the 7-0 victory of the University of Illinois was a harbinger of an even greater home victory later that season against the University of Michigan that saw Red Grange score five touchdowns.
