Georgia State to study potential move to FBS
Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Georgia State is moving from independent status to CAA Football membership this season.
The university may have an even bigger move in the future.
Georgia State announced Tuesday it has commissioned Collegiate Consulting to conduct a study regarding the feasibility of a move to the Football Bowl Subdivision from the Championship Subdivision.
"We are performing our due diligence to fully understand potential opportunities in the rapidly changing landscape of college athletics and particularly college football," Georgia State director of athletics Cheryl L. Levick said. "We will evaluate the information in the feasibility study to determine the best course of action for Georgia State.
"No decisions have been made, and Georgia State has not received an invitation from any conference,"
Georgia State's program has played only two seasons. As a startup program under coach Bill Curry, the Panthers went 6-5 in 2010 and 3-8 this past season.
