College Football News: Georgia State Moving up to FBS?

| by

It seems like just a couple of years ago that Georgia State started it's football program. Wait a minute, it was only a couple of years ago! After two years and nine wins, the Panthers are now looking at bigger and better things.

The AJC reported on their possible move:

Georgia State’s athletics department commissioned a report that explores the expenses and revenues from moving from the FCS, where Georgia State currently plays, to the FBS, which features bowls games and the BCS. The report concludes that “GSU is well-positioned to make a transition to FBS” and “that the Sun Belt would be the best fit.”

Sounds like good news to me. Obviously it would be a big jump and would require a substantial increase in expenses. As stated above, the Sun Belt would be the most likely landing spot but who knows...down the road they could end up a member of the Big East....if it's still around...
