Baylor Line

At McLane Stadium

The Baylor Line fills the first 13 rows-all gold benches-behind the visitor's bench, from goal line to goal line.

About 45 minutes before the game, the Baylor University Golden Wave Band will march through the student tailgating area, across the Umphrey Bridge and into McLane Stadium with the Line following them to the stadium.

The Line will queue behind the scoreboard at the Berm entrance, then run down the ramp, around the field, and line up in the northeast corner to welcome the team.

Once the team has cleared the tunnel, the Line will take their seats. Line runners will go through the tunnel—the same the player exited—and form two lines, head up onto the service level of the stadium and then coming down into their seats, and fill the section from the top down.


Established in 1970, the Baylor Line is composed entirely of students and represents the commitment of Baylor fans everywhere to support and cheer on the Bears. As the leaders of the Baylor spirit, all new students arrive early and stay until the singing of That Good Old Baylor Line after each home football game. All new students represent this great tradition by wearing a football jersey with the number of their graduation year and a nickname on the back. Prior to each home football game, the Line will gather at the south end of McLane Stadium and, led by the cheers of alumni and fans, run onto the field and create an enormous human tunnel to welcome the football team to the field. After each player and coach has entered the stadium, the Line takes their seats in an exclusive Baylor Line section behind the opponents' bench to cheer on the Bears to victory.
