Multiple media reports say WKU has received, and will accept, an invitation to join Conference USA. The Bowling Green Daily News and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel report an announcement from WKU could come as soon as Monday regarding the change in athletic conference affiliation.
ESPN reports WKU will replace Tulsa in C-USA. Last week Tulsa announced it was leaving the conference to join the soon-to-be-renamed Big East.
Sources tell the network the top candidates to replace WKU in the Sun Belt are James Madison and Liberty.
