The University of Massachusetts and the Mid-American Conference are expected to announce on Wednesday the addition of UMASS to the MAC as a football-only member.

The MAC already has one such member in Temple, who plays in the Atlantic-10 in sports other than football.  UMASS, also an A-10 member, will agree to schedule games against MAC members in basketball as part of the deal, which Temple agreed to as well.

The move will give the MAC 14 football playing schools, divided into two seven-team divisions.
