This game was played November 22nd, 1947 between the Princeton Tigers and Dartmouth Indians. The Princeton Tigers won the matchup by a final score of 14-12. The Princeton Tigers football program represents Princeton University and competes as a member of the Ivy League. Princeton's football program—along with the football program at nearby Rutgers University—began in 1869 with a contest that is often regarded as the beginnings of American Football. Students from The College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) traveled to New Brunswick, New Jersey on November 6, 1869 to play Rutgers College (now Rutgers University) in a game using a modified version of London's Football Association rules. Rutgers won what has been called the first intercollegiate American football game 6–4. A week after the Princeton/Rutgers game, the Rutgers team traveled to Princeton for a rematch, which Princeton won 8–0. Both Rutgers and Princeton were retroactively awarded the 1869 National Championship. Due in part to their invention of the sport, the Tigers were one of the dominant forces in the early days of intercollegiate football, winning 22 of the first 40 national titles (1869–1909). As the sport transformed at the hands of figures like Brown University's John Heisman and Yale's Walter Camp and more schools began competing, Princeton and the rest of the eventual Ivy League faded out of national championship contention. The Tigers won their last national championship in 1950 with 1951 Heisman Trophy winner Dick Kazmaier.
