Red Devils Football Stumbles to Ugly Win over Susquehanna

Sat., Nov. 25, 1899

Dickinson traveled to Lewisburg, PA, to take on Susquehanna. The interesting part about this game, though, is that the field was not marked, there were no referee whistles, and not even a football. Eventually both teams walked off of the field due to frustration with the decisions of the officials present. Football or no football, the record book shows a 16-6 Dickinson win.
