Good morning, and thanks for your continued support of Extra Points.

We're still in waiting period regarding any realignment moves the Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big 12 may or may not make. I've written several dispatches on how the realignment train is still moving along at the low-major and D-II level. Now, there may be some changes happening at the FBS level.

On Friday afternoon, ESPN's Pete Thamel shared the following report:

Kennesaw State's athletic department did not respond to my request for comment on the report by press time. A Conference USA spokesperson declined to confirm either, only telling Extra Points that Kennesaw State is a "school of interest" for the league's expansion efforts.

However, I can confirm that there is mutual interest between Kennesaw State and Conference USA, and has been for some time. I can't confirm, as of Monday night, that this is absolutely happening, but boy howdy is there a lot of smoke.

Tomorrow, during the October Board Meeting of the University of Georgia system, the board's Committee On Intercollegiate Athletics will "review a request from Kennesaw State University to enter into a new agreement in its athletic conference affiliation." No additional agenda items are listed under this committee. The group will meet at 11:00 AM, Eastern Time.

For what it's worth, earlier this summer, when I was first hearing about mutual interest between Kennesaw State and CUSA, multiple industry sources told me that they believed the Georgia Board of Regents would be unlikely to approve a Kennesaw reclassification effort....but somehow, it would appear this has changed.

Here's everything else I know, along with some things that I think, about the Owls potentially joining Conference USA and what may happen next:
