The Gauchos played in the SCIAC for eight seasons (1931–1938).

The Gauchos were led by fifth-year head coach Theodore "Spud" Harder and played home games at La Playa Stadium in Santa Barbara, California, they finished the season with a record of two wins and eight losses (2–8, 0–3 SCIAC). Overall, the team was outscored by its opponents 47–109 for the season, that included the Gauchos being shut out in six of the ten games.
