1.
An NCAA conference, but also the mountainous region of the the Mountain Time Zone in the mid-western US, stretching from Idaho, down through Colorado, and into Arizona and New Mexico.

The athletic conference was formed in 1999, from a number of schools leaving the WAC; all stayed until 2011 when realignment elsewhere caused several MWC schools to move up or move out.
In 2012, the Mountain West Conference (or MWC) line-up will be Boise State, San Diego State, Air Force Academy, Colorado State, University of Wyoming, University of New Mexico, UNLV, University of Nevada, and Fresno State in all sports, with University of Hawaii as a football-only member.
