Baylor Homecoming
    Baylor Homecoming
    October 16-19, 2013

    As the oldest university in the state of Texas, Baylor has had a long time to develop rich traditions, with many of the favorites revolving around Homecoming. Celebrated since 1909, Homecoming is that special weekend each fall when alumni return to campus to enjoy the bonfire, the football game and the homecoming parade. Click here for a complete list of homecoming events.

    New Baylor Stadium

    Make sure to stop by the Mayborn Museum and make us part of your Homecoming Tradition! This will be the last homecoming game at Floyd Casey Stadium. Next year, the Mayborn Museum will have a much better view of the festivities. We enjoy watching the progress of the new stadium.
