Northwestern University Archives Football Films Collection
The Northwestern University Archives holds many hundreds of hours’-worth of football films, dating from 1929 to the recent past. Our goal is to digitize these films, some of which are fragile, and to make them available to fans of college football all over the world. Below you will find what has been done so far--an exciting selection of game films, including the 1949 Rose Bowl game, and the notorious 1982 Lake the Posts game.
Do your part to save Northwestern football history - join the Game-Savers Team and support the Football Films digitization effort.
This site will be updated as more films are digitized—so please check back frequently.
Each link below leads to one of the football films (through YouTube). Please note that some games consist of more than one reel. We have also included links to the program covers and rosters, when available.
