1899–1914

In the first sixteen years of Baylor's football team, played without a team mascot and without a conference, varying results were achieved, from one perfect season to a single-win season. In these early years, Baylor's first homecoming football game played at what some consider the world's first true Homecoming and the team played multiple times at The State Fair of Texas.

Championships

Baylor has 5 conference championships.[3] The 1915 championship was forfeited voluntarily after Baylor discovered that a transfer player was ineligible to have played, while no champion was declared in 1916, when Baylor had a better overall record than all other teams but fewer conference wins than Texas.
