New conference, same excellence

After establishing the Pac-12 Conference (then called the Pacific Coast Conference) in 1915 alongside Oregon, Oregon State, and Washington — and being the only continuous member since then alongside the Huskies — the Golden Bears will begin a new chapter in fall 2024 with our first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Show your pride by helping to ensure the Bears roll on in a conference that spans 12 states and two oceans. Whether you’re passionate about football, women’s basketball, or academic success, make a gift to empower more than 850 student-athletes to rise to the challenge in their sports and the classroom!
