North Carolina A&T — a program that experienced notable success in the MEAC — is expected to announce that it is leaving the conference, according to published reports.

The Greensboro News & Record reported Thursday that N.C. A&T will join the Big South in 2021.

N.C. A&T was one of the founding members of the MEAC when the conference formed in 1971.

The move is pending approval of A&T’s board of trustees, which meets Friday morning. If that approval happens, A&T plans to hold a news conference at 10 a.m. Friday to formally announce the change of leagues, the News & Record reported.

The newspaper reported that only the school’s bowling team will remain in the MEAC.

If North Carolina A&T agrees to move forward to relocate to the Big South, it will join Hampton as the only other HBCU member in the conference.
