Pittsburgh AC (PA)

Pittsburgh, PA

Note from Gary Kusch: The two games on 11/26 between West Virginia and Mahoning Cycle Club and between West Virginia and Pittsburg AC were scheduled in an attempt to alleviate a debt problem of the football program at West Virginia brought about by the hiring of Coach Trenchard at $100 per week and other misfortunes. Two separate teams played these games. The Mahoning Cycle Club game was played entirely with substitutes (except for Trenchard who was apparently a player-coach) while the Pittsburg AC game was played by the varsity regulars, but both games are counted as varsity games. I still don?t know the proper sequence of the games (I?ve seen them listed both ways), but evidently it was successful in getting the team out of debt.

Washington & Jefferson (PA)

Washington, PA

Note from Gary Kusch: According to a long article in Logansport Pharos Tribune, the game between Washington & Jefferson and West Virginia (played 11/21) was forfeited to West Virginia by the referee by a 5-0 score. At the point of the forfeit, with only about a minute remaining in the game, each team had scored one TD and failed at goal. West Virginia was about to score when the referee called the forfeit because of delaying tactics on the part of Washington & Jefferson. An early problem occurred in the game when it was discovered that a player from Penn was playing for West Virginia under an assumed name. He evidently got roughed up on virtually every down thereafter. The game was described as the bloodiest and roughest that had been played in Washington in many years. Following the game, a near riot broke about involving players and fans from both schools. The referee was struck twice in the face, and several people were cut by blows from clubs, bricks, canes, and any other handy weapon. The police tried to stop the riot, but fights continued and it was late at night before anything like order was permanently restored. I am not sure why the score was established as 5-0. All sources I have seen list a 6-0 result, but none of them record this as a forfeit.
