I realize there are only three professional games on this list. Does anyone know of any I have missed?

[I used the school names used at the time of a specific game. I realize many were not actually NCAA, but am at a loss as to what else to use.]
Triple digit game scores.


(This list looks like crap on Chrome browser since it doesn't support the small font I used to have each line look good. It looks better in Firefox and IE.)

Wow, thanks. Are all the ones to 1924, independents or local leagues?

Seems they were more crass in these old days. The few who do it now (discounting Indoor Football) get criticized. One sees occasional complaints back then, but not too often.

Is his database on line?

Wasn't the Georgia Tech - Cumberland game the most famous of these?

From "http://en.wikipedia...._football_game" On October 7, 1916, the Georgia Tech Engineers and Cumberland College Bulldogs at Grant Field (now known as Bobby Dodd Stadium) in Atlanta, Georgia game became the most lopsided in the history of college football, as Georgia Tech was victorious 2220

Great list, Paul, as usual. A few comments -

1 - The infamous Georgia Tech 222-0 defeat of Cumberland College has been written about
in a 1983 book called "You Dropped It, You Pick it Up" by Jim Paul, Ed's Publishing, Baton Rouge, La.

2 - Did Cumberland also lose another game on that same date - Oct. 7, 1916? You show them
losing to Sewanee 107-0 on the same date as the Georgia Tech game.

3 - My records show Kankakee, Illinois 14 October 1916: St. Viator College defeats Lane Technical Institute, 205-0. Leo Schlick of St. Viator scores exactly 100 points in the game on 12 touchdowns and 28 of 29 extra points.

It's too bad he missed the 29th extra point; he would have broken Wilt Chamberlain's record :)

Nice catch, John, with the Cumberland. I hope that's my only error. I found it listed as 9/30, the week before. Weird error.

An interesting thing I once noted about the Cumberland team was the high amount of TDs by kick return. Turned out Cumberland chose the option of kicking off after being scored upon, which may still be an allowable choice, though I can't see anyone now choosing it no matter how bad they may be as competition. I guess they thought they'd get better field position, at least in theory.

I added all the semi pro listed above (I call them semi-pro, is this wrong?).

Oops...I guess I closed my computer and lost a few from the above list, the other night. By tonight that will be fixed!

Similar to Sammy Baugh's comment about what the score would have been had the Redskins scored an early touchdown in the 1940 title game against the Bears: "73-7"
