The Iron Men of 1926 is the only undefeated football team in the college’s history, posting a 9-0-1 record and outscoring the opposition 223-36. The team acquired its nickname when the 11 starters played 60 minutes without substitution on consecutive Saturdays against Yale and Dartmouth and well into the fourth quarter against Harvard later in that year. The Iron Men lost their chance for a perfect season when tied by Colgate, 10-10, on Thanksgiving morning. The team was ranked among the top 10 nationally. The lineup: Capt. Hal Broda and Thurston Towle, ends; Ed Kevorkian and Paul Hodge, tackles; Orland Smith and Lou Farber, guards; Charlie Consodine, center; Roy Randall, quarterback; Dave Mishel and Ed Lawrence, halfbacks; Al Cornsweet, fullback.
