Four Memorable Moments that Shaped College Football

Matthew Andrews / University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Where does the game of football come from? And how did it go from an unorganized game called “rugby” to the sport that dominates the American college and cultural landscape? In this lecture we will discuss the genesis of the game as well as explore the four most important moments in the history of college football. Among those making appearances in this lecture are U.S. Presidents Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, and Richard Nixon, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Earl Warren, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Grim Reaper.
