Club football (1965-76) | Division III (1977-)

The Catholic University football program came into its own in the early portion of the century, in part due to large numbers of fans that came through the turnstiles of Brookland Stadium, beginning with its opening Oct. 4, 1924. After that point, the program began setting its sights further and further afield and snagged Arthur "Dutch" Bergman, an assistant coach with the University of Minnesota, to be the mentor of the Cardinal football team.

Bergman used his knowledge of football and influence to build a traveling football powerhouse. The team, which previously had never been farther than Boston, traveled to Detroit, DePaul, Miami, South Dakota State and St. Mary's University (San Antonio, Texas) in the mid-1930s. Bergman also led Catholic to its first two postseason bowl appearances, the 1936 Orange Bowl (a 20-19 win against Mississippi) and the 1940 Sun Bowl (a 0-0 tie with Arizona State). Bergman left Catholic when the program was discontinued in 1941 because of World War II and went on to scout and later coach the Washington Redskins to a NFL playoff appearance in 1943. With an overall record of 59-31-4, Bergman is Catholic's all-time winningest varsity football coach.
