1970 Montclair State Football Team Celebrates Their 50th Reunion
It has been 50 years since the memorable 1970 football season at what was then Montclair State College. In 1970, the team completed a 8-1 regular season and celebrated their second consecutive NJAC Title. The team was invited to play in the postseason Knute Rockne Bowl at the Convention Hall in Atlantic City. Montclair State secured a 7-6 victory over Hampden Sydney College and brought home the trophy.
In celebration of that accomplishment, the 1970 football team reunited to celebrate their 50th anniversary of their championship game. The team was deemed the “greatest football team to ever play at Montclair State” as the only football team in New Jersey to ever win a national championship. The story of this historic game was told over the loudspeakers at Sprague Field as the members of the team were greeted by the spirit squads with roaring cheers and applause during halftime.
