Dickinson Football Opens 1892 Season with Pitiful 58-point Loss at Cornell

Sat., Oct. 8, 1892

The Red Devils opened up their season hoping for a drastic improvement from the year before--that was not the case. Dickinson proved no match for the home team, as Cornell won by a huge 58-0 margin. Fun fact: Glenn S. "Pop" Warner was a member of this Cornell team that beat Dickinson. "Pop" Warner later gained fame as Jim Thorpe's coach with the Carlisle Indians as well as becoming the namesake of the largest youth football organization in the world.
