Lincoln Blue Tigers

The Lincoln Blue Tigers are the sports teams of Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri. The Blue Tigers participate at the NCAA Division II level in Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA). Lincoln competed in the MIAA from 1970 to 1999 when it left due to not sponsoring a football team since 1989. The university competed in the Heartland Conference from 1999 to 2010, of which, Lincoln is a founding conference member. The school revitalized its football program and reentered the MIAA in 2010.[2]

Fight songEdit

Lincoln University doesn't have a name for their fight song, but it is sung to the tune of The Washington And Lee Swing.[5]

Alma materEdit

Sung to the tune of "Ach wie ist's möglich dann", an old German folk song published in 1827 and variously credited to Georg Heinrich or Friedrich Silcher Kuchen, Lincoln's fight song is called Lincoln, O, Lincoln. (The West Point and Wake Forest alma maters also use the same tune.)[5]
