^Texas Tech was a member of the Border Conference, formally known as the Border Intercollegiate Athletic Association (BIAA), when the program was revived in 1954, but the Border Conference declared no baseball championship, although each year it acknowledged the team with the best record. Although Texas Tech was admitted to the SWC in 1956, the baseball team did not begin SWC play until 1968.
