The basic elements of football started at Penn's Franklin Field, Harvard Stadium and the Yale Bowl three of our four oldest stadiums. Today they stand as monuments to the past, having essentially shaped college football and college athletics on the whole as we know them.
Harvard Stadium is the oldest permanent concrete structure in the country. If you're counting, that's 250,000
cubic feet of concrete enough to seat more than 30,000 fans. (Photo courtesy Harvard Athletic Communications)
