Yale vs Harvard 1875
In 1875, Harvard challenged Yale to a game under "Concessionary Rules" of part rugby and part soccer. The game was played in November at New Haven, Connecticut with 15 players on a side instead of 11 as Yale would have preferred and Harvard won by 4 goals and 4 tries to nil. The yearly football renewal of that first contest is simply called "The Game."
