The 1917 NCAA football season had no clear-cut champion, with the Official NCAA Division I Football Records Book listing Georgia Tech as national champions.[2] Tech was the first Southern team to win a title. Davidson beat Auburn in one of the South's biggest upsets. Auburn went on to fight undefeated Ohio State to a scoreless tie. Undefeated Pittsburgh beat Penn on the road 14 to 6, Georgia Tech beat Penn at home 41 to 0, and beat Auburn 68 to 7.

The Mare Island Marines would defeat Camp Lewis 19-7 in the 1918 Rose Bowl.
