The First College Football Game

The game of football was developed during the mid-1800s in the Eastern United States.  At that time, the goal was simply to kick a round ball across the other team’s goal line.  The ball was advanced up the field only by kicking.  Teams consisted of 30 or more players.  As the game grew more popular, stricter rules were adopted and teams became more organized. 

 

The first intercollegiate football game was played in New Brunswick, New Jersey, on November 6, 1869.  Rutgers University defeated the College of New Jersey, now Princeton University, 6-4.  Both colleges are located in New Jersey.
