Established in 1994, the Big 12 is in its 23rd year in 2018-19 as it continues to promote the strength and success of one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences under the direction of seventh-year commissioner Bob Bowlsby. The Big 12 sponsors 23 sports, which include baseball, basketball, football, golf, track and field, swimming, and several more. Big 12 institutions create a league that encompasses five states and nearly 38 million people. Nearly 5,000 student-athletes from across the United States and around the World compete annually in the sports sponsored by the Conference.
