Birmingham-Southern Athletic History

 

Birmingham-Southern College traces its modern athletic history back to the 1918-19 academic year when Birmingham College and Southern University merged to form Birmingham-Southern College. While athletics existed at both previous institutions and some records of those teams and events exist, BSC's official athletic life began in that 1918-19 season.
