CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Hendrix College, under new coach Buck Buchanan, is set to play the school's first football game in 53 years when it hosts Westminster on Saturday.
The Division III school played its last football game in 1960, defeating Ouachita Baptist 7-6. However, school officials disbanded the program following that season due to a lack of financial support.
Hendrix began varsity football in 1906, and following a survey in 2008 that showed support for football from 95 percent of potential students, the school began raising money to resurrect the sport - to go along with its other 20 athletic programs.
Buchanan was hired in March of 2012 to begin planning for this season, and he'll field a team of 55 players, including 48 freshmen.
