USE COPIES OF ALL RECORDINGS MUST BE PRODUCED PRIOR TO PATRON VIEWING.

The North Carolina State University, Athletics, Football Audio/Visual Materials collection contains primarily moving image recordings of North Carolina State University varsity football games. These recordings were captured by the Department of Athletics for coaching and review purposes, and are mostly without sound, commentary, or other narration. Also included in this collection are a small number of narrated moving image recordings on the topics of NC State football and collegiate football in general, intended for airing over television stations; as well as miscellaneous footage of individual players and coaches at NC State. Materials range in date from 1937 to 1992, and some recordings are undated.

In 1892, the first official football game at NC State was played against a local prep school, Raleigh Male Academy; in 1893, State played their first intercollegiate game against Tennessee. The 1895 team was the first to wear the now traditional red and white colored uniforms, a change from their original pink and blue uniforms. The first on-campus football game was played in 1907 on the field that would later become Riddick Stadium. In 1918, John Ripple becomes the first athlete at NC State to be named an All-American in any sport, and in 1978, Ted Brown becomes the first African American to be named an All-American in football. The football team adopted the nickname “Wolfpack” in 1921, although all other sports continued to use the name “Red Terrors.” In 1930, the first night game was played at Riddick Stadium, and ended in a 37-0 victory against High Point. The team was invited to their first post-season bowl game in 1947, the January 1 Gator bowl against the University of Oklahoma. On October 21 1950, the football team played their first televised game against Maryland. The new Carter Stadium (renamed Carter-Finley Stadium in 1979) opened on October 8, 1966, and in 1967, Marcus Martin became the first African American member of the football team. In 1967, the team won their first bowl game (the Liberty Bowl) against Georgia with a score of 14-7. The team won their first ACC championship in 1979.
