This weekend, Baylor University Libraries will offer a variety of events in celebration of Baylor's 103rd Homecoming.

"Kick Off"

The Central Libraries will display a "Kick Off" exhibit featuring Baylor Football and Homecoming memorabilia, photos of head coaches and All-Americans, as well as honor the legendary 1980 Southwest Conference Championship team.

Other cases will feature football programs from the 1980 season, music and lyrics to various Baylor songs, and images of Baylor mascots through the years.

All attendees will receive a Joe College souvenir postcard.
