Princeton Tigers football was created in 1869.
It was Rutgers College (Rutgers University) and The College of New Jersey (Princeton University).
Princeton has a very detailed history for football. The Princeton Tigers played the very first college football game in 1869 against Rutgers Scarlet Knights.
Princeton University's team doctor for football is Dr. Margot Putukian. She is also the Director of Athletic Medicine Services and serves as head physician for all of the athletic teams at Princeton.
The name of the first team would be up for debate since there had to be two teams to actually play football. Rutgers and Princeton played the first game in 1869. I am not aware that one claims to have organized before the other. When the games were first being played, Rutgers teams were the "Queensmen". I am not aware of Princeton's team name. There must be two teams so that begs the question, which of the two teams involved in the first "football" game organized first? The game, in 1869 was between Princeton University and the Rutgers University Queensmen. I am unaware of Princeton calling their teams by any formal name at the time. Whether that was considered "college football" is up to interpretation since it was more akin to rugby.
No, Princeton and Alabama have never met in football.
Rutgers opened its 1965 season at Princeton on September 25. The captains of the team met for the coin flip. Peter Savidge was the Rutgers team captain and shook hands with the Princeton captain - his twin brother Paul. Paul was the elder brother -- by 10 minutes.
