Bit ambiguous, but probably the Canton Bulldogs (who were formed in 1905, possibly as a semi-pro team, but went pro in the formation of the NFL in 1920).

However, a large number of other teams were formed or went pro in 1920 who might be possible contenders include:

  • Akron Pros / Indians (1920-26)
  • Buffalo All Americans / Bisons / Rangers (1920-29)
  • Chicago Tigers (1920)
  • Cleveland Tigers (1920-21)
  • Columbus Panhandles / Tigers (1920-26)
  • Dayton Triangles (1920-29)
  • Detroit Heralds (1920)
  • Hammond Pros (1920-26)
  • Muncie Flyers (1920-21)
  • Rochester Jeffersons (1920-25)
  • Rock Island Independents (1920-25)
Probably the best rival claim is the Akron Pros, who were at least a semi-pro team as early as 1908.

What was the name of the first college football team?

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.
