Best Answer

The first American football games were played by the Ivy League schools Yale, Harvard and Princeton. By the early 20th century, there were many deaths, and the president, Teddy Roosevelt. was going to outlaw the game unless some chaneges were made. The schools formed the NCAA and made rules and regulations. These rules also introduced the first forward pass in American football. The rest is history.
