Leonard B. "Stub" Allison attended and graduated from Carleton College in Minnesota. He was promoted to head coach after serving as an assistant at Washington in 1919. Allison coached the last Washington football game at Denny Field on November 5, 1920 which ended in a 3-0 loss to Stanford. He also coached the first game at Husky Stadium on November 27, 1920 when Washington lost to Dartmouth 28-7 before 24,000 fans to finish the season a disappointing 1-5-0. Allison's squad was the last at Washington to be nicknamed the Sun Dodgers. Allison later resurfaced as the head coach at California in 1935 after serving as an assistant in Berkeley from 1931- 34. In 10 seasons as the Bears' head coach, Allison compiled a 58-42-2 record including a 10-0-1 squad in 1937 that finished second in the AP poll and beat Alabama in the 1938 Rose Bowl 13-0 for Cal's last Rose Bowl win.
