  • * = These schools had football teams when they were junior colleges, but none have since becoming universities.
  1. ^ Prior to the 2018–19 school year, the athletic program now operated by Purdue Fort Wayne (PFW) represented the now-defunct Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW), with the athletic program branded as "Fort Wayne". On July 1, 2018, Indiana University and Purdue University dissolved IPFW, with IU taking over academic programs in health sciences and Purdue retaining all other academic programs. The athletic program transferred to PFW because an overwhelming majority of the combined institution's student body was in degree programs operated by PFW.[57] About two weeks before the institutional split, PFW announced that the athletic program would be known as the Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons.[58]
  2. ^ PFW's immediate predecessor of IPFW was founded in 1964. However, the institution ultimately traces its history to separate schools founded in 1917 and 1947.
  3. ^ In July 2015, UTRGV, in full the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, entered full operation after the merger of the two University of Texas System campuses in the Rio Grande Valley, the University of Texas–Pan American (UTPA) and University of Texas at Brownsville.[90] Nearly a year before the merger, the UT System announced that UTRGV would inherit the UTPA athletic program,[91] and later unveiled the new school's nickname as Vaqueros.
  4. ^ UTRGV has six campuses throughout its service area, but its athletic program is based from the former UTPA main campus in Edinburg.
  5. ^ UTRGV was formally founded in 2013 and began full operation in 2015, but inherited its athletic program from UTPA, which was founded in 1927 as the two-year Edinburg College.
