Classic Football Matchups From Way, Way Back

This article is more than 5 years old.

Our Jan. 31 on the long history of American football included some great clips of early football games and some  admittedly less-than-sexy early Super Bowl halftime concerts.

While planning the hour this week, one of our producers found some fantastic archival footage of old college football games, including a 1903 clip from Thomas Edison himself. As you gear up for Super Bowl XLVIII this Sunday, take a look back at the game's past.

Princeton v. Yale, 1903

Princeton v. Harvard, 1919

Northwester v. Minnesota, 1930
