This site is devoted to the history of the Southwest Conference and the great football helmet designs that came from the nine teams in over 70 years of history.

Please also take a look at the special memorial section within the 1939 Texas A&M page, which is dedicated to my cousin, Howard Shelton, who was a member of that team and passed away in 2006.

New updated pages for all schools, featuring new alternate, matte, polychrome, and special "one-off" and bowl helmets. Most of the former SWC schools feature multiple helmet designs now.

Also, check out the links on several team pages to order full-size suspension era full-size authentic replica helmets for Arkansas, Baylor, SMU, Texas A&M, and Texas from Historic Helmets, which specializes in beautifully made authentic era hand-crafted full-size football helmets. Great opportunity to add vintage SWC helmets to your collection.
