THE BIRTHPLACE OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL
The Rutgers Football Program is notable for playing in what is considered to be the first ever intercollegiate football game in 1869, in which they defeated Princeton University. For this reason, Rutgers has been described as "the birthplace of college football."
The site for the contest was a small plot of land where College Avenue currently runs through Rutgers' campus in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The structure of the game resembled more of a rugby-style contest instead of modern-day football, in which players were allowed to kick and bat the ball with their fists and hands.
Rutgers squad was captained by William J. Leggett and donned scarlet kerchiefs atop their heads in an effort to distinguish between the two teams. Rutgers would go on to win the contest by a score of 6 goals to 4... and the rest is history!

Opening Night at The New Brunswick Performing Arts Center
Be a part of this historic story and the first patrons to experience Crossroads Theatre Company's new home at the state-of-the-art New Brunswick Performing Arts Center.
The glorious and complicated life of scholar/athlete/activist Paul Robeson is brought to life on stage in honor of the 100th Anniversary of his graduation from Rutgers University. Paul Robeson is a powerful look at the many facets of Robeson—the man and the celebrity. The play stars veteran Broadway performer Nathaniel Stampley Jr. in the title role.
Tracing significant events of Robeson's life, the play reveals how he faces the dynamics of the prevalent presence of racism in the early part of the 20th century. Triumphing over this struggle makes Robeson a modern day hero as he used his influence and stature to enlighten those around him.
