It was created in 1890. This makes it one of the oldest college football teams in the United States. Along with Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and Washington University in St. Louis, Kansas was a charter member of the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1907. This became the Big Eight Conference. The Big Eight became the Big 12 in 1996. Kansas is the only original member of the MVIAA that is still part of the Big 12.
