The first game in the fabled Harvard-Yale football rivalry wasn't a football game at all, but a sort of compromise that combined soccer and rugby. You can see by the program cover that they used a soccer ball, and the Crimson talked the Elis into playing with 15 men to a side.

The Crimson won the game comfortably, by a score that today would likely have been 28 to 0. But the Yalies were so taken by the game that with certain modifications in the rules (and of course the shape of the ball) the rivalry was set for entrenchment.
