The Western Athletic Conference (WAC) is an American collegiate athletic conference, which was formed on July 27, 1962, making it the sixth oldest of the 11 college athletic conferences currently participating in the NCAA's Division I FBS (formerly Division I-A). The WAC covers a broad expanse of the western United States, with member institutions located in California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah, plus the "non-western" state of Louisiana (traditionally associated with the South).

In 2012, the WAC will lose its presence in the states of Nevada and Hawaii, but will also gain institutions in Colorado and Texas starting in 2012. The WAC is generally considered a "mid-major" conference, since it is not an automatic-qualifier member of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) selection system.
