Trivia

When it premiered in New York City on June 22, 1933, the running time was one hour and eight minutes, and reviewers complained about the "choppy" editing. As a result, missing sequences were restored, and the running time was extended to one hour and twenty minutes, which is the version presently available on DVD. See more »

College Humor On Location filming site.
17 September 2007 | by tstockslSee all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie, but I just read an (unconfirmed) story about it today:

The football game scenes of "College Humor" were filmed in Riddick Stadium on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC! The stadium has since been torn down, and the only remaining remnant of the site is the old field house (re-purposed several times since the 1950s when games moved to a new stadium), which is now used as a construction office. The building is due to be torn down and replaced by a parking garage in 2009.

Not sure if anyone can confirm this or not.

According to the story, the field house was so small that there was not enough room for the whole team to sit down for meetings!
