The first game of American football was played on November 6th, 1869, between Rutgers and Princeton. It evolved from soccer and rugby football, developing its own rules and structure over the years. In its raw form, death and danger were rampant. A 1905 peak of 19 deaths prompted Theodore Roosevelt to threaten abolishment unless significant changes were made. This lead to the formation of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association of the United States later named the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Since then, it has become the most popular sport in the US. The NFL has the highest average attendance of any professional league in the world.
