  Big Eight Conference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Big Eight Conference, a former NCAA-affiliated Division I-A college athletic association that sponsored American football, was formed in 1906 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 of St. Louis.
Conference membership remained unchanged until the addition of the University of Colorado in 1948 from the Skyline Conference (a forerunner of the Western Athletic Conference).
The conference remained essentially unchanged until 1996, when the eight member schools combined with four former members of the now-defunct Southwest Conference (Baylor University, University of Texas, Texas AandM University, and Texas Tech University) to form the Big Twelve Conference.

 Conference Champions :: Part Three, The Big Twelve
What I want to do today is to take a quick look at the BCS conferences and their composite schools and give you my take on what look to be the best “futures” out of the bunch.
But before we get into a breakdown of the six conferences and the various lines on the teams, let me first acknowledge that betting futures is rarely the best choice for your gaming dollar.
Iowa State was one of the worst teams in the conference last year getting outscored by nearly 35 ppg, and though I see an upswing in the team this year, they aren’t going to challenge for the crown.

Colorado switched from silver helmets to gold ones at some point in the early- to mid-1960s; so far, I can only narrow this switch down to somewhere in the period 1963 to 1965.
