Baylor University Libraries Athletics Archive

The Baylor University Libraries Athletics Archive contains material related to our proud sports history. Items are drawn from private donors, the libraries of former coaches, institutional partners, and the archival holdings of the university, most notably The Texas Collection.

Currently, the Archive focuses on Baylor Football, with a special emphasis on the 1980 Southwest Conference championship team. As the Archive grows, it will include materials from all Baylor sports and all eras, dating back to the earliest days of the University.
