In the very first college football game, Rutgers beat Princeton by a score of 6–4 on November 6, 1869. The game did not resemble anything about today’s football, however, it was the starting point.

That very first college game was played in old College Field at Rutgers University, now College Avenue Gymnasium. Rutgers played games there until 1891 when Neilson Field was built.

In 1938, Rutgers Stadium was completed and the Scarlet Knights have been here ever since. There have been many additions and enhancements to Rutgers Stadium bringing the total capacity to 52,454.
