C-USA to add new members
Florida Atlantic and Middle Tennessee State are leaving the Sun Belt Conference for Conference USA.
An announcement was made by the conference Thursday.
“Besides being tremendous institutions, this is a logical move for us,” Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky said in a statement. “These schools fit well within our strategic plan to be a major market, two-division conference that is student-athlete and fan friendly. We know they will make great contributions to our bright future.”
