8: IVY LEAGUE FOOTBALL AND AMERICA
(1/70; 1/114 also available)


Close   



Documentary  TV-PG

From the very first time Princeton played the first intercollegiate game in 1869, football had America in its grasp – and the Ivy League was right at its forefront. By the 1880’s, New York’s Manhattan Field overflowed to watch Princeton and Yale play for the national championship, and many of the men who would grow the game into what we know and watch today would come from Ivy League fields. 8: IVY LEAGUE FOOTBALL AND AMERICA explores the unique role that the eight Ivy League schools played in developing American football. This fascinating documentary examines how the sport came to be dominated by the collection of famous schools – and why the schools decided to walk away from the over-commercialized game they had done so much to create.
