CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Central Arkansas' transition to Division I
The school announced Friday that it has achieved "active
membership" in Division I after a five-year transition period. All
of its teams will be eligible for postseason play this fall both
nationally and in the Southland Conference.
Central Arkansas' football team, which plays in the Football
Championship Subdivision, finished atop the Southland in 2008 but
was not allowed to compete in the FCS playoffs.
Earlier this year, Central Arkansas hired former Arkansas star
Corliss Williamson as its basketball coach.
