College football will be in full swing this Saturday so it is time to continue the mission of determining the Best College Football team of all time. College football Champions were determined starting in 1869 and all the teams up to 1900 were all Ivy League Schools. The group has become so big because it is a double elimination tournament, but there were not a lot of games starting out. The only Champion determined for the Tournament of Champions was 1869 Princeton who beat 1869 Rutgers 2 games to 0. Since then, the league has grown one team a year, but teams gain one loss allowed since they have been playing longer; the standings will show this, so the league might hold all Champions up through 2017 before it is all said and done.

Game #1 of the 1893 Season was between #14 1889 Princeton and #17 1890 Harvard. Both games for these years were already used, so only offensive and defensive parameters were used to determine the final score. Princeton won 43-15. Game #4 was played on 10-25-1893 and again featured 1890 Harvard, this time going to play at #31 1876 Yale. Harvard won this game 25-2.

Game 7 was played on 11-18-1893 between #27 1874 Yale and #34 1875 Harvard. Harvard won this game 13-11. For the standings, we are going to fast forward through the 1894 Season. The format is win-loss, point differential, and losses allowed, a bonus for teams that have been playing longer.
