  • The Big Eight Conference was a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)-affiliated Division I-A college athletic association that sponsored football. It was formed in January 1907 as the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MVIAA) by its charter member schools: the University of Kansas, University of Missouri, University of Nebraska, and Washington University in St. Louis. Additionally, the University of Iowa was an original member of the MVIAA, while maintaining joint membership in the Western Conference (now the Big Ten Conference). The conference was dissolved in 1996. Its membership at its dissolution consisted of the University of Nebraska, Iowa State University, the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, the University of Missouri, the University of Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State University. The Big Eight kept its headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri. In February 1995, the Big Eight and the Southwest Conference announced that the two leagues had reached an agreement to form a new conference. The eight members of the Big Eight joined with SWC schools Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, and Texas Tech to form the Big 12 Conference the following year. A vote was conducted on whether to keep the new conference's headquarters in Kansas City, and by a vote of 7–5 the conference members voted to move to the Dallas, Texas suburb of Irving. The two Oklahoma schools, all four Texas schools, and Colorado voted for the move while both Kansas schools, Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa State voted for Kansas City. (en)

  • La Big 8 Conference était un groupement de huit universités situées dans le centre des États-Unis et gérant les compétitions sportives dans onze sports masculin et dix sports féminin. Sa section Football Américain (que nous développons dans cet article) faisait autrefois partie de la Division I-A de la NCAA (actuellement connue sous le nom de FBS ou Football Bowl Subdivision) À l'origine, en 1907, elle était appelée la Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MVIAA). Elle deviendra au fil des ans la Big 6, la Big 7 et ensuite la Big 8 en 1958. Elle disparaîtra en 1996 lors de la création de la Big 12 Conference. Il s'agissait d'une conférence très réputée et ses équipes universitaires décrocheront onze titre de champion national en ce y compris lors des deux dernières années de son existence (1994 et 1995). Sept joueurs de la Big 8 gagneront le titre du Heisman Trophy, le titre le plus prestigieux décerné à un joueur de football de niveau universitaire. (fr)
