Oct. 3 vs. TCU
Opening the local football season, Baylor defeated TCU in front of a large crowd on the former's campus; a street railway strike forced many spectators to arrive by less conventional means, such as hay wagons.
Following the wins against Texas Christian University and Fort Worth University, Baylor was considered a strong contender for the state championship if the team could win the game against Texas. Although Texas won, the team's captain, Rembert Watson was injured and missed Texas's next game against Arkansas.
Nov. 7 vs. Texas A&M
The game "was the hardest fought game ever played at Waco," and while A&M held the advantage, they could not score before time ended each half.
