The majority of Idaho’s intercollegiate athletic teams will begin Big Sky Conference play during the 2014-15 academic year. The Vandal football program will play as an Independent at the Bowl Subdivision level of Division I football.With 11 schools, all Big Sky teams will be playing 20 conference games, and seven teams will make the Big Sky tournament this year. With the addition of Idaho, it likely means that more changes will eventually be on the horizon. 12 teams is more stable and more intuitive than eleven, so this looks to be a great development for the future of the conference.
The University of Idaho will become the Big Sky’s 12th member. The Big Sky currently consists of 11 core institutions plus Cal Poly and UC Davis as football affiliate members.
