Creighton was one of the great mid-major programs in the country. For years they dominated the Missouri Valley Conference, but in 2013 they made the jump to the Big East. While many of their fans may not travel to see them play along the I-95 corridor, they get a treat when those schools come to Omaha.
Basketball is a big deal at Creighton for two reasons. The first reason is they’re historically pretty good. The other reason is they haven’t had a football team since World War II. So, Creighton fans have to channel all their energy into their basketball program.
