Sources: Sun Belt final FBS conference to add title game
The Sun Belt will become the final FBS conference to add a conference football title game, sources told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.
The Sun Belt isn't expected to add its championship game until 2018, a source said.
For the next two seasons, the Sun Belt will have 11 members, but the league voted recently not to renew football memberships of Idaho and New Mexico State after they expire after the 2017 season.
Big 12 to bring back conference title game in '17
The Big 12 Conference unanimously voted Friday to bring back a conference championship game -- a rule that will be implemented in the 2017 season.
Coastal Carolina, which is joining the Sun Belt in 2018, will bring the football membership to 10 teams for the 2018 season.
The Sun Belt has scheduled a Wednesday afternoon conference call with commissioner Karl Benson and Texas State president Dr. Denise Trauth.
Last week, the Big 12 announced it would add a conference title game in 2017. The Big 12 and Sun Belt will be the only FBS conferences that will not have a football championship game in 2016.
