Middle Tennessee State University Conference RealignmentFollowing the departures of Tulane and ECU, Conference USA has invited Middle Tennessee St. to join. MTSU was the runner up for the spots that eventually went to Old Dominion and Charlotte. But with the loss of the New Orleans market via Tulane, gaining some access into the Nashville market is just what CUSA needs.

Florida Atlantic University Conference RealignmentConference USA will also add Sun Belt member Florida Atlantic.

CUSA had the options of revisiting the FCS route with schools such as JMU, Appalachian St. or Georgia Southern. They also have additional Sun Belt members such as Georgia St whom could add some access to the Atlanta market.

For the Sun Belt, they can replace MTSU and FAU from the same pool of candidates. Appalachian St., Georgia Southern and JMU are all potential FCS upgrades. New Mexico St., currently in limbo as a football independent and member of the 5 school WAC for other sports would jump at the opportunity to join the Sun Belt.
