Reports: WKU to Join Conference USA in 2014

Mar 30, 2013

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.
