  Southwest Conference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Southwest Conference became an official body on December 8, 1914 at a formal meeting at the Rice Hotel in Houston.
In 1940, an agreement was reached that the winner of the conference football title would play in the Cotton Bowl, which further established the prestige of both the bowl and the conference.
As a result, the conference's market share in television coverage dwindled, and the disbandment of the SWC became inevitable after Arkansas left for the Southeastern Conference in 1992.

 Handbook of Texas Online: CONFERENCE OF SOUTHWEST FOUNDATIONS
The annual conferences were attended by foundation donors and their families, trustees, persons who were considering establishing foundations, bank trust officers, and executives of the few staffed foundations.
The conference was incorporated in the state of Texas in October 1975, and a 501(c)(3) exemption was granted by the Internal Revenue Service in January 1976.
Although the Conference of Southwest Foundations was the first, and for many years the only, organization of its kind, gradually groups of foundations and grantmakers began to be formed throughout the country in other regions, states, and metropolitan areas.

The new conference, however, was able to raise academic and ethical standards for those schools who did join, and they did enjoy greater recognition and respect throughout the rest of the country.
In 1940 the conference entered into an agreement with the Cotton Bowl that allowed the SWC champion to be the host team every year; the 1995 Cotton Bowl, however, marked the final year of this structure.
