1932 Colgate Red Raiders football team


The 1932 Colgate Red Raiders fooball team represented Colgate University in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) intercollegiate competition during the 1932 college football season. Fourth-year head coach Andrew Kerr led Colgate to a perfect record, and the team did not allow an opponent to score throughout the entire season.


Nevertheless, Colgate did not receive an expected invitation to the 1933 Rose Bowl, and as such, the team was called "undefeated, untied, unscored upon, and uninvited".[2] The 1932 Colgate eleven is one of only three college football teams since 1920 to have finished a perfect season without being scored upon.
