CFP Trivia Challenge Question Game 33

Postby Spence » Tue Jun 06, 2006 9:05 pm

From Mountainman,

Probably the biggest change that opened up the game to more fan interest was the rule legalizing the forward pass. At first players could pass the ball only under narrow restrictions, and the pass did not become a major offensive tool until rule modifications allowing more passing flexibility. Tiny West Virginia Wesleyan College had its first undefeated season in 1912, thanks partly to the pass. The following year unbeaten Notre Dame, then an excellent but little-known team, called the entire nation's attention to the new weapon when it used the pass to shock powerful Army 35-13 at West Point, the only defeat the Cadets suffered in 1913.

What year was the forward pass legalized in college football?



Thanks to all who sent questions today. It really helps me out. :D

Only one question has made it the full 24 hours. I think that in the process of trying to find the answers to these questions that everyone gets to learn a little more about the game. It will make things more interesting once the season starts. Learning is never a bad thing.
