From 1932-1934, and 1943-1945 no champion was named. There were only two seasons where the title was split and two co-champions were named; 1938, New Mexico and New Mexico State and in 1942 Hardin-Simmons and Texas Tech. The winner of the conference title often received an invite to the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. [1]
