Randy Jefferson & Alex Hernandez (No. 91)
The Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) was established in 1912 with 14 member institutions. It included the five state teachers colleges in Missouri – Warrensburg Teachers College (now the University of Central Missouri), Northeast Missouri State Teachers College (now Truman State University), Northwest Missouri State Teacher's College (now Northwest Missouri State University), Missouri State Normal School of the Third District (now Southeast Missouri State University, and Southwest Missouri State Teacher's College (now Missouri State University). It also included nine private schools – Central Methodist University, Central Wesleyan College, Culver–Stockton College, Drury University, Missouri Valley College, Missouri Wesleyan College, Tarkio College, Westminster College, and William Jewell College. Only Central Missouri and Northwest Missouri State remain members in the MIAA.
In 1924 the conference reorganized to include only public schools, and conference records tend to begin with that date. The schools left behind in the reorganization went on to later form the Missouri College Athletic Union, which would in time become the current Heart of America Athletic Conference in the NAIA. The Missouri College Athletic Union (MCAU) was an intercollegiate athletic conference that existed from 1924 to 1970. It consisted primarily of private universities from the state of Missouri that departed the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association after its 1924 reorganization. After folding in 1970, the MCAU's members formed the Heart of America Athletic Conference.
