This article talks about SportsDataIO's team abbreviations and the different options clients can use.
SportsDataIO has team abbreviations for schools and they can be found in our CFB and the CBB Teams endpoint. Most clients choose to use our Key field for team abbreviations.
Some clients prefer to use the ShortDisplayName field instead for school abbreviations because they prefer the abbreviation provided as opposed to the abbreviation provided for the Key field. Many of the Key and ShortDisplayName abbreviations are the same, but you can see some differences below.
