Oldest College Football Footage

This is the oldest recording of a college football game, snippets of the 1903 clash of undefeateds Princeton and Yale, filmed by Thomas Edison.

It looks a whole lot more like rugby, you can see how much closer to its progenitor this version of football is. After a tackle the next play gets off nearly as quickly as the next phase in rugby league play (rugby league is rugby union's stupid little brother).
