Turf War: A History Of College Sports

09/10/2012 at 8:00 p.m.

In this episode of BackStory, the History Guys unpack the origins of college sports and the ways universities have justified athletics on campus. Peter, Ed and Brian take us back to Amherst College in the 19th century where the first collegiate physical–education program blossomed, and they tell a little–known story about the integration of the University of Alabama's football team.
