The Southwest Conference (SWC) was a college athletic conference in the United States, now defunct. It consisted of schools in the states of Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Established in 1914, its charter members were the University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, Baylor University, the University of Arkansas, the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University (then Oklahoma A&M), Southwestern University (in Georgetown, Texas), and Rice University. Oklahoma left in 1919 and Oklahoma A&M left in 1925, leaving Arkansas as the only non-Texas school for the rest of the conference's existence.
In May of 1996, after the completions of championship matches in baseball and track & field, the Southwest Conference was officially dissolved.
