Belmont moving to Ohio Valley Conference in 2012-13 academic year.

This will be the second northern member of the Atlantic Sun to leave in as many years, with Campbell leaving for the Big South in the fall. There's speculation that TN State may be looking to move to the SWAC to replace Jacksonville State, which has an eye on the Sun Belt. That would open up that 12th spot in the OVC for a possible move for Lipscomb, allowing the Battle of the Boulevard to continue in a relevant fashion.

The Atlantic Sun might be the first conference to dissolve from all this recent shuffling, and even if it doesn't, radical changes could be coming. Kennesaw State has FCS aspirations and will likely leave in eight years or less, and the conference could also lose Mercer for similar reasons. ETSU could be up in the air depending on what changes the new president makes when he/she takes office in January.
