The Michigan Collegiate Conference (MCC) was an athletic conference that existed in the United States for four seasons, from 1927[1] through 1931.[2]

History

Formed in December 1926,[3] the members were the Michigan State Normal Hurons (now Eastern Michigan University),[1] the Western State Normal Hilltoppers (now Western Michigan University),[4] the Central State Teachers Chippewas (now Central Michigan University),[5] and the College of the City of Detroit Tartars (now Wayne State University).

Sports sponsored by the MCC included baseball,[6] football,[1] men's basketball,[7] track,[3] and tennis.[3]

The conference disbanded at the 1931 annual meeting. Detroit City College had tendered their resignation due their teams not being strong enough in all sports. The remaining members tried to recruit other colleges but were unsuccessful.[2]
