This day in 1892
California continued its early tradition of playing games in the fall, winter, and spring with a 14-0 victory over San Francisco Boys High School in Berkeley, Calif. From the program’s founding a decade earlier, the Golden Bears employed a spring schedule, consistently playing games in January, February, March and April, until adopting a traditional fall schedule in the fall of 1892.
The more I think about this, the more I wonder if college football will one day return to this concept. Who would be apposed to some springtime MACtion? Anybody?
