SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE TO ADD UNIVERSITY OF THE INCARNATE WORD
ACU Receives Southland Invitation; Decision to come this weekend
Abilene Christian University has received an official invitation from the Southland Conference to join its league and move to NCAA Division I affiliation in all sports. Because of previous schedule commitments, the football team would begin SLC play in 2014, but all other sports would begin Division I competition with the 2013-14 school year.
The ACU Board of Trustees and the administration will discuss the invitation this weekend at the Board's regularly scheduled meeting and make a determination as to whether or not ACU will accept the invitation.
If ACU accepts the invitation, we will host a press conference Saturday, Aug. 25, at 12:30 p.m. in the Hunter Welcome Center to make the official announcement.
No ACU administrator, coach or student-athlete will be made available to media to discuss the situation until Saturday.
