For laughs you should read about the 222-0 slaughter in college football. I think it was Georgia Tech who won. The opposing team’s best play was their ability to come up with tactics to block extra points. Methods that they came up with are still used today.

Yep, Georgia Tech over Cumberland, I believe.

That’s 55+ pts a quarter
How is that temporally possible?

The blowout: How one-sided was this game?

Georgia Tech scored at least 42 points in every quarter (63, 63, 54 and 42).

The Yellow Jackets scored 32 touchdowns, and Cumberland committed 15 turnovers (nine fumbles lost, six interceptions).

Georgia Tech ran a relatively low 29 offensive plays, all rushes, for 501 total yards (17.3 yards per play). Cumberland finished with negative-28 total yards.

Cumberland did not gain a first down. Georgia Tech had 20.

I think this was all in retaliation too. If I remember correctly, Cumberland beat Georgia Tech in baseball this previous spring. Afterwards- word got out that Cumberland actually hired professional baseball players to play that game for them. The same coach that managed the baseball team for Georgia Tech was also their football coach at the time.

62–7 (1973) still an embarrassment
:meh32:

Didn’t we lose by that score to the Colts back in the early 2000’s as well? Maybe mid 2000’s?
Or maybe that’s the game we beat them 62-7 lol.

When I was a kid, in the pre-internet days, I was obsessed about this game. As a young football fan, I just couldn’t believe the story.

Whenever we had library time in elementary school, I’d grab the sports almanac that had a big write-up about the game.

Good times.

Indeed. It also returned the favor for a 2003 loss during the Haslett era and during Peyton Manning’s prime with the Colts. Something like 55-21.
That’s the one I was thinking of.
