The 35th Grey Cup was played on November 29, 1947, before 18,885 fans at Varsity Stadium at Toronto.

The Toronto Argonauts defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 10 to 9. The game had one of the most exciting finishes in Grey Cup history. Winnipeg had jumped out to a 9 to 0 lead but found the game tied in the last minute. Blue Bomber's all-star Bob Sandberg, who had scored his team's only touchdown, tried to fake a kick, but the ruse didn't work. Argo's star Joe Krol scored a final rouge to snatch the victory.
