This Day in Bonaventure History

By Joe Pinter, News Editor, @JPinter93

November 29, 1928

St. Bonaventure University’s short-lived football program’s points of pride are well documented in both the Hall of Fame Room in the Reilly Center and commemorative books. People such as Hugh Devore, Mike Reilly and Ted Marchibroda come to mind.

Unfortunately for football fans, the program only lasted from 1915-1951. One of the most memorable events of the short era of Bonaventure football was a Thanksgiving Day game played on this day in history.

The Brown Indians played St. Thomas College in Scranton, Pa.

St. Thomas College still exists to this day under the name of the University of Scranton.
