The 1914 Kendall Orange and Black football team represented Henry Kendall College (later renamed the University of Tulsa) during the 1914 college football season. Local businessmen urged Sam P. McBirney, who had coached the team in 1908, to take over as the football coach. Prior to 1913, the bulk of its games had been played against high school teams,[1] from 1914 to 1916, McBirney built the Kendall football team into one of the best in the country. The 1914 team finished with a record of 6-2, outscored opponents 261 to 48, defeated Northwestern Oklahoma State (33-0), East Central (12-0), Pittsburg State (63-0), and Oklahoma City (39-9), and played respectably against both Oklahoma A&M (a 13-6 loss) and Oklahoma (a 26-7 loss).[2]
