Belmont Joining OVC

After nine years and 30 championships in the Atlantic Sun Conference, the Belmont Bruins today announced plans to join the Brentwood-based Ohio Valley Conference.

With the addition of Belmont University, the OVC now has twelve member schools. Others include nearby Austin Peay, Murray State, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech.

Belmont will play one more year in the Atlantic Sun Conference. All but one of Belmont’s 17 sports will compete in OVC play. The only exception is men’s soccer, which the conference does not sponsor.
