Murray State University has an athletics program called the Murray State Racers which were originally named the Thoroughbreds. All the other teams switched to the Murray State Racers except the baseball team. In 1961, they became the Racers after a number of nicknames were used by sports writers. The name increased in popularity so it became the new name used throughout the college's many varsity sports teams. They are an NCAA Division 1 team which competes in the Ohio Valley Conference under the current athletic director Allen Ward. Along with Eastern Kentucky University and Morehead State University, Murray State University are original members of the Ohio Valley Conference. The Racers have had a whopping 45 winning seasons over the years and have the honor of having a total of 33 All-American players of which 14 were First Team all-Americans. The Racers have a total of two scoring records in their history. Their modern day record was set during a homecoming game against the Missouri State Bears with a score of 72-59. Their most impressive record came about in 1932 when the Racers decimated the Louisville Cardinals with a staggering score of 105-0, shutting the Cardinals out in one of the highest scoring games of all time. They have been Ohio Valley Conference champions in 1948, 1950-51, 1976, 1986, 1995-96, and 2002.
