Big Sky Conference adds two members

Back in September the Big Sky Conference added two new schools to the conference to compete in football.

Today the Conference announced the addition of two new "core" member schools with adding North Dakota and Southern Utah.

The Big Sky Conference is privileged to announce that the University of North Dakota and Southern Utah University have accepted invitations to become core members of the Division I conference.

Both institutions received formal invitations from the league Friday, Oct. 29, advancing a process that began when the presidents of the nine current Big Sky Conference core universities approved expansion plans at their annual fall meeting on Oct. 20. Both institutions will officially join the Big Sky on July 1, 2012.

The addition of these teams puts the Big Sky at 11 core schools and 13 football schools. But that's not all the news the conference had.

The Big Sky Conference is also on the verge of announcing the addition of the University of South Dakota as a 12th core member.

The Conference will have 14 football members and be divided into two, seven team divisions.

Everyone has been talking about "power conferences" in the FBS, well the Big Sky is showing that they are quickly becoming the power conference of the FCS.
