The History of Homecoming

Homecoming got its start on college campuses as a fall celebration of the first football game of the season, for which alumni would return to their alma maters. Although most early homecomings date back to the turn of the century, there's some debate over which school actually began the tradition. The University of Missouri claims to have invented homecoming in 1911, when Director of Athletics, Chester L. Brewer, had the bright idea to invite alumni back to the annual game against the University of Kansas—he further sauced things up with a spirit rally and parade.  While Trivial Pursuit and "Jeopardy!" also recognize Mizzou as homecoming's progenitor, Baylor University in Texas says it held its inaugural homecoming game in 1909.
