The Big West Conference (BWC) is an NCAA-affiliated Division I major college athletic conference that formerly sponsored Division I-A (now known as Division I FBS) college football, through the 2000 season. The Big West is considered to be a mid-major conference. When the conference began in 1969, its name was the "Pacific Coast Athletic Conference" (PCAA). After nineteen years, in 1988, its name was changed to the Big West Conference. []
