Back on Oct. 7, 1916 this spirited group of Cumberland University students took the train to Atlanta to fulfill a contractual obligation with the Georgia Tech football program. The result was the worst loss in the recorded history of college football 222-0. The sport was dropped at Cumberland in 1906, resumed in 1912, dropped in 1915, and resumed briefly in 1916 when the memorable 222-0 game with Georgia Tech was one of a handful of games played.
