1914: A Perfect Season
Now open at the H.J. Lutcher Stark Center for Physical Culture and Sports: We invite you to experience our new exhibit “1914: A Perfect Season,” an informative celebration of the perfect 1914 football season and the individuals who made it possible.
The 1914 team dominated, achieving a points-per-game record that stood for 91 years, and a total season score of 358 to their opponents’ 21. Come take a journey back to when The University of Texas had just over 2,000 students enrolled, when Austin had 32,000 residents, and when the average height and weight of an offensive lineman was 5’10” and 175lbs. Take a journey to 1914, and experience what made 1914 UT Longhorn football great.
The exhibit can be visited during regular hours (Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) and features never before seen images, info, and stories about what made this team so extraordinary. Access the Stark Center via the east elevator (Level 5) in the North End Zone concourse (Gate 16).
