Today the Technician Way Back Machine takes us to May of 1936 and the final issue of the spring semester, which included a recap of a relatively new freshman and sophomore tradition:

The article never specifies how a goal is scored in this contest, though since it took place on the football field, perhaps pushing the Firestone Special past the goal line was the only requirement.
