Western Kentucky to C-USA: Big Red to the league of red, white and blue
Since we last updated our easy-to-use conference realignment graphic, a length of time ago so short it can still comfortably be expressed in hours, here’s what else has transpired in the ceaseless league-hopping square dance: As first reported over the weekend by the Bowling Green Daily News, Western Kentucky has elected to join Conference USA next summer.
The move will take effect on July 1, 2014; the school will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. ET to formally announce the switch. No replacement member institution has been announced for the Sun Belt, but our pals at SB Nation heard a while back that JMU was next in line to level up should a current team depart.
