#TBT: Football Hits The Radiowaves

DHREA 04/10/2018



97 years ago on October 8th, 1921, the fabled “Backyard Brawl” received a little bit of extra attention. At the time, the meeting was only the 17th between the University of Pittsburgh and West Virginia University. Over the years, Pitt vs. WVU became one of the most entertaining rivalries in all of college football. So, it’s only fitting in the infancy of the bitter rivalry, the two schools would make history together and become the first ever football game to be broadcast live.

KDKA Radio covered the game, and Harold Arlin held the honor of calling the first contest to hit the radio waves. To make things even more historic, the game was played at the iconic Forbes Field. The Panthers defeated the Mountaineers 21-13. The contest wasn’t as close as the score leads on, as the Mountaineers’ George Hill made the game look a little more respectable after a kickoff return for a touchdown on the final play of the game. Hail to Pitt!
