Creighton Athletics

Our move to the BIG EAST is more than an honor for our athletics program. It’s a testament to the level of our academics and reputation throughout the country.

Fueled by you

Creighton Athletics has a long and storied history. Multiple programs have competed in the NCAA Tournament, continuing the University’s 30-year streak with at least one NCAA Tournament team. 

In 2013, our move to the BIG EAST Conference brought an unprecedented level of national attention — to Creighton and Omaha. 

It also created countless opportunities for our nearly 300 student-athletes, who have access to some of the best coaches, faculty and facilities in the nation.  

We know it takes more than great skills to compete. It requires endurance — endurance fueled by you.
