Best Answer

In the first days of football when a ball carrier crossed the goal line he would touch the ball to the ground. The touching of the ball to the ground for the score was called a "TOUCHDOWN".

This rule still applies in Rugby, where a player doesn't score unless he touches the ball to the ground.
