Minnesota Golden Gophers Tickets for Sale

The first Big Nine title game for the Gophers was played in 1900. That season, Minnesota went 10-0-2 under the first year direction of Dr. Henry Williams. Dr. Williams was Minnesota's first full-time, salaried coach. He left his mark on the game as a member of the rules committee: he was the first to propose legislation legalizing the forward pass. (The forward pass was legalized in 1906.) In 21 years as football coach he compiled a 136-33-11 record. The Gophers won eight Big Ten titles under Williams. He was honored in 1950 when the U of M Fieldhouse was renamed Williams Arena.

Minnesota football history was made on Sept. 29, 1882, when Minnesota played Hamline at the Col. King State Fairgrounds, near Riverside and Franklin in South Minneapolis. These two teams, along with Carleton, were to take part in a "Field Day" at the Fairgrounds. Carleton failed to show up, and Hamline nearly left, but Minnesota team captain A.J. Baldwin talked Hamline into staying and playing what would be the first football game in U of M history. Baldwin scored the first points of the game to lead the Gophers to a 4-0 win.

Alfred Pillsbury was one of the founders of football at Minnesota. In the early days, there were no governing bodies regulating collegiate eligibility, so Pillsbury played at Minnesota for eight seasons, from 1885-92. His greatest contribution may have been changing the team's style of play from the soccer style to the rugby style. He accomplished this mainly because he owned the only rugby ball in town!
