I've never seen one, but I know that Harvard, Yale, Princton, Cornell, Chicago, and Michigan were all playing in the 1880's. The first ever football game was played by Rutgers and Princeton in 1869 but the rules and the game in general didn't resemble today's game... I believe it was soccer with tackling. Each team also had 25 players. Rutgers University played the first football game vs Princeton in New Brunswick, New Jersey on November 6, 1869. Rutgers won 6 - 4. Each point is believed to represent a touchdown. Rutgers uses the slogan "The Birthplace of College Football".
