UCA conference affiliation

I was surprised to see the Bears are playing in the A-Sun. When did this happen, and did they leave the Southland in football too?

They announced it last January to begin fall 2021, and yes.

A curious move. I’m sure they have their reasons, but in my mind, A-Sun is just a nice way of saying Trans America Conference. I think I also saw that Jacksonville State is moving to C-USA and Southern Miss is going to the Sunbelt.

Not like the Southland is anything great either. CUSA is basically imploding; nine schools are leaving and they’re adding Jacksonville State, Liberty and two other schools.
