*Won Conference USA Football Championship Game
Conference USA Championship Week 15 results – Standings
The Conference USA Football Championship was a total non-event. FAU jumped out in front of UAB quickly, turning a 14-3 first quarter lead into an overwhelming 35-6 halftime advantage. All the while the Ole Miss football Twitter account was tweeting out gifs in regards to the not-so-secret future of one Lane Kiffin. That ended up being more entertaining than the game itself.
Updates from elsewhere in C-USA
Time runs out for Frank Wilson and Bobby Wilder
Now former head coach Frank Wilson was fired from UTSA following the season. Shortly after, former Old Dominion head coach Bobby Wilder elected to resign from the program. At the time, those were the only Conference USA football head coaching jobs to open this offseason.
What’s next for some of C-USA’s best?
For the past few seasons, Bill Clark and Lane Kiffin have represented the best coaching Conference USA has to offer. Rumors of both coaches potentially being on the move surfaced during the lead up to the conference championship game. Kiffin made the leap to the SEC. Clark is staying put, for now, but the coaching carousel hasn’t stopped spinning just yet.Join The Roost. React to stories and news in the forum.
