The Final Chicago College All-Star Game

Here’s a crazy video from the 1970s. For many decades, there was a preseason football game between a team of college all-stars and the previous year’s Super Bowl winner. At one point, the game was competitive and very popular, but over time, the pros began to dominate.

The final game came in 1976 when the Pittsburgh Steelers were easily beating the college all-stars. Later in the third quarter, Soldier Field was hit with massive rain. It quickly escalated into something biblical. This is where the video truly gets crazy. The players leave the field and fans storm on. It’s absolute mayhem. The drenched fans are running and sliding on the field. They even tear down goalposts.

The unfinished game was canceled and that was that—it was the final Chicago College All-Star Game.
