The Austin Outlaws are a women's football team in the Women's Football Alliance. They are based in Austin, Texas. Home games are played at Chaparral Stadium on the campus of Westlake High School.

Founded in 2001 as a charter member of the Independent Women's Football League, the Outlaws finished 5-1, good enough for the first IWFL championship (playoffs were not held that year).

The following year of 2002, the Outlaws finished 7-1 and made the IWFL playoffs. After defeating the Corvallis Pride in the qualifier, the Outlaws fell 24-4 to the New York Sharks in the championship game.

In 2003 the Outlaws moved to the National Women's Football Association, where they would spend their next six seasons. That inaugural season was only as an exhibition team, and the Outlaws lost their only exhibition game.

For 2004, the Outlaws became a full-time member of the NWFA. Despite finishing with a 5-3 record (second place in the Southwest Division), the Outlaws missed the playoffs.

In 2005, the Outlaws once again missed the playoffs, finishing at 4-4 and ninth place in the Southern Division.

2006 was the year the Outlaws returned to the postseason, finishing at 6-2 and second place in the South West Division. However, their playoff exit was quick, losing 23-6 to the Chattanooga Locomotion in the first round.

2007 showed the Outlaws with another second-place finish in the Southern Conference West Division at 5-3. Unfortunately, that was once again not good enough for the postseason.

In 2008, again the Outlaws finished 5-3 (for third place in the South Central Division this time), and once again missed the postseason. After the season, the Outlaws announced their move to the Women's Football Alliance.

The 2009 season brought a division championship back home to Austin. With a record of 7-1, the Outlaws traveled to Jacksonville to play against the Dixie Blues. Though the Outlaws were defeated, they remain proud that they beat the tough Lone Star Mustangs twice in order to earn that title.
