Another formatter URL is https://stats.ncaa.org/teams/history/$2/$1, where $2 refers to the sport code (e.g. MBB=men's basketball, WFH=women's field hockey, etc). A list of codes can be found at commons:Data:NCAA sport codes.tab.

MotivationEdit

These codes are assigned to every NCAA member institution, and every educational institution that a NCAA member plays a match against. They are used on stats.ncaa.org, and they are also heavily used internally within the NCAA and its member institutions (see http://www.ncaa.org/championships/statistics/ncaa-media-coordination-and-statistics-information-sids for example).
