The Southern Conference was formed in Atlanta, Georgia on February 25, 1921, as fourteen member institutions split from the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Southern Conference charter members were Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (now Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Washington & Lee. In 1922, six more universities - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane, and Vanderbilt will join the conference. Later additions will include Sewanee (1923), Virginia Military Institute (1925), Duke (1929), and Wake Forest (1936).
