You're welcome, America

On November 6th, 1869, Rutgers defeated Princeton, 6-4, in the first ever game of intercollegiate football. Rutgers later paved over the site of the game with a parking lot. Who's up for candlelight vigil tomorrow behind the College Ave gym?

Last January, I posted links to several interesting articles about that historic first. I'm curious to see if the athletic department does anything to mark the anniversary tomorrow.
