The Baylor Line - A Tradition Like No Other
50 Years of the Baylor Line
About The Baylor Line
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.
At McLane Stadium
Traditionally, the Baylor Line fills the first 13 rows-all gold benches-behind the visitor's bench, from goal line to goal line.
The Line queues behind the scoreboard at the Berm entrance, then runs 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 takes their seats. Line runners 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.
