The Bethany Swedes football team represents Bethany College in the sport of college football. They are part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), competing in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC). Historically known as the "Terrible Swedes", the sport began at Bethany in 1893 when the college played two games and finished with a record of one win and one loss. The school played two games again in 1894, then did not field a team until 1901 when the program produced five wins, two losses, and one tie. As of completion of the 2009 season, Bethany has won 475 games, lost 363, and 31 games ended in a tie.[2]

The current coach of the schools football program is Paul Hubbard, and he is in his second season at the helm.[3] Former coach Ted Kessinger was named to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010[4] and former coach Bennie Owen was inducted in 1951.[5]
