They keep saying that Alabama has a chance to post the first 15-0 season in college football. Didn't Yale or Princeton ring up one or two of those back in the day? How about Penn? Penn used to schedule an inordinate number of games per season, like 16 or 17 a year.

Yes, we went 16-0 in 1894, but we were far from perfect. Williams, yes Williams, scored four points, Army got five, and, most shamefully, H ruined it all by scoring at all (another four).

... beat 15 colleges.

Yale played several athletic clubs/associations in 1894.

gentlemen; the crimson tide was a paltry three wins and one loss in 1894.

As far as I can tell from the media guide, Princeton never played more than 14 in a season and never won more than 12.

Looking at the old games (late 1800s/early 1900s) in the guide is fascinating. It was not unusual to win by 50 or 70 or even more to nothing, but the schedule included athletic clubs or even a prep school like Lawrenceville, plus the famous (and now banned-name) Carlisle Indians. In 1892, PU won 12 games by an AVERAGE of about 40-0, and it lost to Penn and Yale by average of 9-2. I was also intrigued by tidbits like hockey legend Hobey Baker also being captain of the football team (1913), and games played versus Georgetown at turn of the last century (and probably in the same Georgetown stadium).
