When did NCAA football begin?
Since the NCAA was not established until 1910, I would say that NCAA football did not begin until 1910. However, COLLEGE football was being played long before that, as early as 1869, though the game played then more closely resembled rugby than modern American football. See the Wikipedia article on "college football", or just "American football", for more information.
