150 years in the making - Rutgers Football History

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!
