The University at Buffalo has a long and colorful college sports history. In fact, 14 UB students formed the first football team in 1894. By 1896, they were a local force in Western New York football playing collegiate and club teams and finishing the season with an impressive 9-1-2 record. Today the team competes at the NCAA Division I level in the Football Bowl Subdivision and is a member of the Mid-American Conference.
With that unique history in mind, the UB Libraries are pleased to introduce the “UB Sports History Collection,” which focuses on the early years of UB sports.
This collection covers the early years of University at Buffalo athletics. The collection will continue to grow in phases and will eventually encompass all UB intercollegiate sports teams (both men’s and women’s) from their beginnings to the present day.View the Photos
