Bowl game season is an exciting time in college football. Schools across the nation will battle it out for postseason glory and a chance to end their year on a high note.

One team that's no stranger to playing in bowl games is the Baylor Bears. Here's everything you need to know about Baylor's bowl history before making its next appearance.

Baylor Bowl Game History

It's no surprise an accomplished team like the Bears has been very busy during bowl season throughout the school's history. Baylor has played in 27 bowl games all-time, and the program owns a winning record of 14-13.

The Bears appeared in their first bowl following the 1948 campaign. That Bob Woodruff-coached squad defeated Wake Forest 20-7 in the Dixie Bowl, giving the school its first-ever bowl win.

Baylor's most recent bowl appearance was in the 2022 Armed Forces Bowl. The Bears unfortunately couldn't get it done in that one, falling 30-15 to Air Force.
