The 1909 Baylor football team represented Baylor University during the 1909 college football season. 1909 was only the second season in which Baylor's first six games were at home; since then, Baylor has not begun the season with more than four home games. The season is prominent for having the world's first "Home-Coming" at the Thanksgiving Day game, which included a concert, parade, and bonfire. To this day, Baylor claims to have the largest homecoming parade in the world.
