Dickinson Football Receives Forfeit Win over Bucknell

Sat., Nov. 21, 1896

Bucknell was up six late in the game when one of their players, Nattress, and Dickinson's Taylor got into a fight. The officials broke it up and ejected Bucknell's Nattress from the game. Bucknell refused to play without him and walked off the field mid-game in protest. The 6-0 score was reversed and gave Dickinson the victory.
