When UAB announced on 12/1/14 that they were dropping football, the immediate concern by many fans was what Conference USA would do with them.

May 1st, 2012 | By | Category: Atlantic 10 Expansion & Realignment, CAA Expansion & Realignment, Conference USA Expansion & Realignment, Featured News, NCAA Conference Expansion & Realignment
