- "†" Denotes shared title
- Arizona has been listed by some as conference champion for the 1945 season and Texas Tech has been listed by some as conference champion for the years 1932, 1933, 1934 and 1944, but Border Intercollegiate Athletic Association rules forbade an official conference championship being awarded to a team without a minimum of three games played between conference members.
- Texas Tech won its two conference games in 1938 but did not win the official championship since it did not meet the conference's three-game requirement. Its victory over New Mexico did not count toward the championship, permitting New Mexico to share the 1938 Border Conference championship with New Mexico State.
