Metro Conference

From BR Bullpen

The Metro Conference was an NCAA Division I athletics conference, so named because all of its charter members were situated in urban metropolitan areas in, or at least on the fringes of, the Southern United States. The conference never sponsored football. In 1995 it merged with the Great Midwest Conference to form Conference USA. The merger was driven mainly by football, as several Metro Conference members had been successfully lured to larger conferences that sponsored the sport.
