In the late 19th century, the history of what football is today had just begun. Originally referred to as “gridiron football”, which was related to the English sports soccer and rugby, quickly became more and more popular in universities across the country. The first American football “contest” was held on November 6, 1869, between Princeton and Rutgers in New Brunswick, New Jersey (now known as Princeton University).
The person responsible for this transition from rugby to the sport we know and love today is named Walter Camp, who is known as the “Father of American Football”. He helped create and shape the rules behind the game by partnering with the Intercollegiate Football Association (IFA).
With football being America’s favorite sport and the 153rd season of college football starting, we thought it would be fitting to ask our agents who your favorite college football team, your predictions for the season, and what your favorite game day traditions are! Tell us the story behind your love for the game below!
