Lamar Cardinals Football TicketsLamar University started in 1923 as South Park Junior College, but football was a part of the school's history even at this early stage. The football program enjoyed a few years of moderate success, but the department chose to disband it in 1928. While most teams are put on hiatus due to failing performance or lack of interest, the Lamar Cardinals simply couldn't find any common opponents to play matches against at the time. After just four years, the school chose to renew the program in 1932 under the direction of John Gray, who led the team to a successful season of eight wins and just a single loss. Another hiatus happened a few years later due to World War II, but the team came back in 1946. This was also the first year that the school decided to offer football scholarships to students. Another major disbandment happened to the Cardinals in 1989, but the team has been going strong again since 2010. Find your Lamar Cardinals' tickets at StubHub.
