Three more teams — defending C-USA champion Tulsa, Tulane and East Carolina — are headed to the American Athletic Conference next year, when Old Dominion and Western Kentucky arrive. Conference USA expects to be back to 14 football teams when Charlotte begins play in 2015.

"If you're involved with coaching football, you're in the ever-changing landscape of conference affiliation," said first-year Southern Miss coach Todd Monken, who was aware of the pending changes when he took over a Golden Eagles team that didn't win a game last season.

After Tulane leaves, Southern Miss will be the only school remaining from when the league made its debut with six teams in 1996.

Tulsa was the unanimous pick by the coaches in their preseason poll to win the West Division in its last C-USA season. East Carolina, another soon-departing school, is favored in the East after getting 11 of 14 first-place votes.

East Carolina coach Ruffin McNeill said it's a bit different, but "not that awkward" getting ready to play a final season before changing leagues.

The six newcomers were split equally among the two divisions, with former Sun Belt teams Middle Tennessee, Florida Atlantic and Florida International in the East. In the West are North Texas, also from the Sun Belt, and former WAC teams Louisiana Tech and UTSA.
