The possibility of ACU moving up a weight class into Division I sports has been lingering around for the last few years. Another step might be taken to make that possibility a reality.
On Friday, ACU’s athletic director, Jared Mosley, will make a presentation to faculty members concerning ACU’s current state of athletics in Div. II and the advantages and disadvantages of making a move elsewhere.
After the presentation, which will last about 25 minutes, Mosley and President Phil Schubert will be fielding any questions the faculty might have.
One option that could be in ACU’s future is the Div. I FCS Southland Conference. The University of Texas-San Antonio and Texas State University announced last week they officially would be leaving the Southland Conference for Div. I FBS Western Athletic Conference. That leaves two slots open in a Div. I conference that is geographically close to ACU.
