Honoring Athletics at Homecoming

There has always been a traditional connection between sporting events and Homecoming, which naturally looks a little different this year. While the bleachers are empty and the locker rooms are quiet, Widener Athletics reminds us that we're all connected and cheering for the same team even when we are apart. Check out some of the unique ways they've been keeping players and alumni connected to one another during this unique season.

Team vs. Team Tuesday

It's Homecoming Week and there's no reason to limit ourselves to Tuesday for a chance to watch our favorite coaches go head-to-head in an epic competitive trivia contest that tests their knowledge of 90's television theme songs!

Blue and Gold Backtrack

It was the year 2000 - a new millennium and a redefining season for the Widener Football team. We caught up with some members of the team and got the story of the season in their own words.
