The Big South Conference is a college athletic conference affiliated with the NCAA's Division I. The conference's football teams are part of the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA). The Big South, founded in 1983, is firmly rooted in the southeastern United States, with member institutions located in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.[1]

Charter members included Armstrong State (now Armstrong Atlantic State), Augusta (now Augusta State), Campbell University, Charleston Baptist (now Charleston Southern), Coastal Carolina University, Radford, and Winthrop.

The Big South Conference began sponsoring football in 2002, with Charleston Southern University, Gardner–Webb University, and Liberty University, and fielding teams; Coastal Carolina University and Virginia Military Institute joined the conference as football-playing members in 2003. Presbyterian joined the conference in 2007, moving up from Division II, and became eligible for regular-season championships and conference honors during the 2008 athletic year.[2] Gardner–Webb, which had been a football playing member since 2002, joined the conference for all sports on July 1, 2008.[2]
