FARGO – Two of the premier residents of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision house are moving out after this season. Georgia Southern and Appalachian State are Football Bowl Subdivision-bound, according to multiple reports, and will join the Sun Belt Conference.


The two combined for nine national titles, 26 percent of the total, and are perennial big names on a national FCS scale. Both will be ineligible for the 2013 playoffs and will be FBS eligible in 2015.
