An interesting read. What a game. I think the spread was covered. :) Edited title score 222-0.

    Seems impossible doesn't it?

    At 7 points for a touchdown, that's a touchdown roughly every two minutes.

    They actually shortened the game!

    Georgia Tech scored 32 touchdowns... while running 26 plays. And had no first downs.

    Supposedly GT was angry that Cumberland had used professional baseball players to beat their baseball team 22-0 and this was retaliation

    The 1916 Illinois 14-9 upset of Minnesota was far more significant

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.
