 Mountain West Conference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mountain West Conference (or MWC), the youngest of the college athletic conferences affiliated with the NCAA’s Division I-A, officially began operations in July 1999.
The MWC sponsors championships in baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's golf, skiing, women's soccer, swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis, women's volleyball, football, softball, outdoor track and cross country.
Many of its member schools participate in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation for sports not sponsored by the Mountain West Conference (interestingly, for men's soccer, BYU fields a semi-professional team, and San Diego State competes as a member of the Pacific Ten Conference).
