Houston Baptist Huskies, also known as Houston Baptist, HBU or Huskies, refers to the sports teams of Houston Baptist University. With the inception of the athletics program at the university in 1960 until 1990 the Huskies were a part of the NCAA. After playing for seventeen years as a member of the NAIA, the Huskies began play as an NCAA Division I team again in 2007.

After one year of independent status in the NCAA, HBU joined the Great West Conference, and will begin play as a member in 2008 for all sports but basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, and women's soccer.
