This category groups sites about American college football, including team and conference home pages, news media, history, and fan sites. The history of American football begins with a college match in 1869 between Princeton and Rutgers; the shape of the ball and goalposts and the modern rules were all established by college officials and players. In days before movies or television, many came to follow their local college or university team with great interest, especially after reforms to improve safety. The richness of football traditions and lore at schools and in communities and the nation at large-- "win one for the Gipper" was Notre Dame coach Knute Rockne's line-- continues to hold the fascination of fans in the United States and elsewhere.
