| Field Surface: Artificial Turf
The 2014 campaign marks the inaugural season of McLane Stadium, Baylor's new state-of-the-art home on the banks of the Brazos River.
The 45,000-seat stadium will be the new home for Baylor University football and will also host a variety of music, sports, family and lifestyle events.
The Bears spent the previous 64 seasons at Floyd Casey Stadium, closing "The Case" out in style with a 30-10 victory over Texas that clinched Baylor's first-ever Big 12 Football Championship.

When at home, the Bears are lead out onto the field by a group of students known as the "Baylor Line." This long-standing tradition holds that a group of students, composed entirely of freshmen, dons gold jerseys with unique nicknames emblazoned on the back. After running around to pump up the crowd, the frosh form an human "tunnel" through which the team runs.
While Baylor football has been a much-loved tradition for more than 120 years, there were three seasons when it was either banned or cancelled. In 1906 the school deemed football too violent a sport, and in the 1943 and 1944 seasons the school didn't field teams due to World War II.
