Ok three hints.

1. The team was not an independent at the time.

2. It did happen within the last 50 years.

3. Including the "Co-" in Co-Champions is important.

Only about four hours left on this one. Anyone else going to take a stab at it?

Georgia Tech 1990??
They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.

See, well ya see, the thing is, he should have caught that ball. But the ball is bigger than his hands.

No, you need to look for a year where a conference had lots of co-champs.

The Answer is,

In a bizarre year (1994), Texas A&M was not eligible for the Southwest championship. After running through the conference, with only a tie against SMU (the ponies only non-confernece loss), there were 5 teams ties for second at 4-3. Since A&M was not eligible, but beat all 5 teams, these teams tied for the Southwest title.

A&M had victories over Texas Tech, Texas, TCU, Baylor and Rice. No other team has beaten 5 such teams in a single year.

Ktffan gets 100.00 for having the second question to go the distance.
