Sun Belt develops University Reference Guide

NEW ORLEANS (SunBeltSports.org) - The Sun Belt Conference has worked closely with each member university over the past several months to develop a "University Reference Guide" that will be used by the conference office when referring to each one of its members.  These references have been approved by each Sun Belt President or Chancellor.

While the Sun Belt will encourage its member universities, media partners and outside entities to use the guide so there is consistency in how the universities' sports teams are referenced, it cannot and will not be mandated.
