Historical IUP Football game programs have been made available to the public via IUP’s institutional repository, The Knowledge Repository@IUP.
Indiana Football dates back to the 1890s when Indiana State Normal School competed against regional athletic clubs and other schools. Many of the rivalries of today started nearly 100 years ago. Fans came by horse-drawn carriage and trolley to line the field and watch the tied 0-0 game between ISNS and its arch-rival Kiski School on November 20, 1911. In 1914, head coach William Smith, a former ISNS football player, led the team to a 34-3-1 record from 1914 to 1917.
The programs are part of an IUP Special Collections and University Archives collection that includes game programs, memorabilia, artifacts, photographs, publications, and game recordings about the football team since its inception at Indiana State Normal School.
IUP Special Collections and University Archives also hold the scrapbooks of IUP Football Coach Charles Klausing. Klausing was football head coach at Indiana State College (later Indiana University of Pennsylvania) for six seasons from 1964 to 1969. His record was 47-10, and his 1968 team was in a
postseason game, losing to the University of Delaware 31-24 in
the Boardwalk Bowl, played in Convention Hall in Atlantic City
on December 14, 1968. This was the first indoor game broadcast
