The Bucknell football team was established in 1883 after a group of students from Christy Mathewson was buried in Lewisburg. In his honor, there was no cheering in the first quarter. In 1960, the team won its first Lambert Cup. In 1989, the newly renovated Christy Mathewson–Memorial Stadium was renamed in Mathewson's honor. In 1996, Bucknell won its first conference championship. Bucknell football celebrated its seventh-straight winning season in 2001.
