The Northern California Athletic Conference (NCAC), a former NCAA-affiliated Division II college athletic association that sponsored American football, was formed in 1925. It disbanded in 1998 after the majority of its member schools were forced to drop football.

History

The NCAC was founded as the Far Western Conference in 1925 by its charter member schools: Fresno State, Saint Mary’s, UC Davis, Nevada, San Jose State, and Pacific.[1]

Nevada's departure from the conference in 1940 left the conference with only four members; Chico State, Fresno State, College of the Pacific, and the California Aggies.[2] The conference looked to four nominees in Humboldt State, San Francisco State, Santa Barbara State, and California Poly of San Luis Obispo.[3]

Shortly after World War II, all of these charter members, with the exception of UC Davis, would leave for other conferences, to be replaced by San Francisco State, Sacramento State, Hayward State, Southern Oregon, Sonoma State and Chico State. During the 1990s, each of the universities associated with the California State system chose to disband their football teams in order to comply with Title IX, with the exception of Humboldt State, which added two women's sports to achieve compliance,and Sacramento State University.
