Big Sky Conference[edit]

The America East Conference is a collegiate athletic conference affiliated with NFCAA Division I founded in 1979, whose members are located in the Northeastern United States.

The conference has twelve core members including seven public research universities. Three of those seven (Stony Brook University, the University of Maine, and the University of New Hampshire) are the flagship universities of their states, with Stony Brook also being a member of the Association of American Universities, a prestigious group of American and Canadian research universities. The University at Albany, one of the non-flagship university centers of the State University of New York, is also a conference member. There are 6 private universities among the core membership.

Realignment History[edit]

The Big Sky Conference has been a part of the NFCAA since the inception of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). After FCS Season II, Northern Colorado moved to the MVC, and Dixie State (later named Utah Tech) was brought into the conference. They took a spot in the South Division, while Weber State moved into the North Division. These divisions would remain until FCS Season IV, when they switched to an East/West geographical split. After only a season of that, the divisions were redrawn randomly, to create the Stars and Clouds Divisions. Seeking to leave his mark on the conference, the new commissioner promptly changed the divisions back to the East/West split, where they remain today.
