Pacific Coast Conference
The PACIFIC COAST CONFERENCE (PCC) was a college athletic conference in the United States which existed from 1915 to 1959. Though the Pac-12 Conference (Pac-12) claims the PCC's history as part of its own, with eight of the ten PCC members (including all four original PCC charter members) now in the Pac-12, the older league had a completely different charter and was disbanded in 1959 due to a major crisis and scandal. The name Pacific Coast Conference is now used by a San Diego area community college league established in 1982. Established on December 2, 1915, its four charter members were the University of California , the University of Washington , the University of Oregon , and Oregon Agricultural College (now Oregon State University )

D-I schools include the major collegiate athletic powers, with larger budgets, more elaborate facilities and more athletic scholarships than Divisions II and III as well as many smaller schools committed to the highest level of intercollegiate competition.

Western United States
The WESTERN UNITED STATES, commonly referred to as the AMERICAN WEST, the FAR WEST, or simply THE WEST, traditionally refers to the region comprising the westernmost states of the United States . Because European settlement in the U.S. expanded westward after its founding, the meaning of the West has evolved over time. Prior to about 1800, the crest of the Appalachian Mountains was seen as the western frontier . Since then, the frontier generally moved westward and eventually lands west of the Mississippi River came to be referred to as the West. Though no consensus exists, even among experts, for the definition of the West as a region, the U.S. Census Bureau's definition of the 13 westernmost states includes the Rocky Mountains and the Great Basin to the West Coast , and the outlying states of Hawaii and Alaska. The West contains several major biomes

College Football
COLLEGE FOOTBALL is American football played by teams of student athletes fielded by American universities, colleges, and military academies , or Canadian football played by teams of student athletes fielded by Canadian universities.
