Encyclopedia > Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association

The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association, or SIAA was the first collegiate athletic conference formed in the United States. Twenty-seven (almost a quarter) of the current Division I-A football programs can claim membership in this conference, as can at least ninteen other schools. Every member of the current Southeastern Conference as well as eight of the twelve members of the Atlantic Coast Conference can claim membership. (Duke and Wake Forest did not participate in the league; Boston College is a historically northern school; and Florida State did not sponsor football until after the league dissolved.) The Southeastern Conference (SEC) is a college athletic conference headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama which operates in the southeastern part of the United States. ... The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is one of the oldest collegiate athletic leagues in the United States. ...


It was founded in 1895 by Dr. William Dudley, Dean of the Vanderbilt University Medical College. The original members included Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. Clemson, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Tulane would join a year later.


On February 25, 1921, fourteen of the thirty schools in the conference - Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee - left the conference to form the Southern Conference. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - would join them, as would the University of the South (now known as Sewannee) in 1923 and VMI in 1925. With many of its members gone, it would have a renaissance of sorts, adding almost as many members as it had lost. Due to competition from the Southeastern and Southern conferences, it would eventually disband after the 1941 season, as many of its teams would disband during World War II. The Southern Conference (or SoCon) is a college athletic conference affiliated with the NCAAs Division I-AA for football and Division I for all other sports. ...
