Missouri Valley Conference

Founded in 1907, the Missouri Valley Conference is the nation's second oldest Division I collegiate athletic conference. The beginnings of the conference trace to eight administrators representing five institutions, who met at the Midland Hotel in Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 12, 1907. The five schools which formed the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association were Washington University of St. Louis, and the state universities of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Two months after the initial meeting, two more schools -- Drake University and Iowa State College -- were admitted. Some consider the MVC formed from the split of the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MVIAA) in 1928. Several schools of that conference formed the MVC, while others retained the MVIAA name, which would ultimately become the Big Eight Conference. Both conferences claim the same history.
