The first college football game took place in 1869 between Princeton and Rutgers University. Each team had 25 players on the field, and no forward passing was allowed. Rutgers won by a score of 6 to 4.
The LSU mascot, Mike the Tiger, is kept in a pen in the back of the stadium. Before home games, he's placed in a cage and moved near the visiting team's locker room, so that opposing players must pass by him on the way to the field.
