Abstract

Contained in this collection are media guides from the Division of Athletics. Many of these guides contain short biographies of team and staff members, team statistics, team schedules and program descriptions.

Biographical Note Historical Note

Sports appeared at the University of Buffalo in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, notably with the rise of the UB football team in 1894. Other sports teams formed throughout the following years, eventually halting during World War II. UB athletics slowly returned following this hiatus, eventually transitioning from the student-run structure of earlier years to a more structured, University-sanctioned Division of Athletics. Today, UB is home to sixteen Division-I teams.

Arrangement

The media guides are arranged chronologically by academic year and then alphabetically by athletic program. Some athletic programs are not represented every year.
