Lone Star Conference to Add Two Schools in 2016

The Lone Star Conference announced the addition of two schools to the league for the 2016-17 season, Friday morning.

The University of Texas of the Permian Basin, or UTPB, will be a full member starting in the fall of 2016, leaving the Heartland Conference.

Also, Oklahoma Panhandle State University will join as an associate member, competing in football only, starting in 2016. The Aggies will also take part in the LSC Football Playoffs in 2015, filling the void left by McMurry when that school decided to return to Division III.

Regardless of their finish in the regular-season next year, OPSU will assume the 8th seed in the LSC Playoffs, visiting the #5 seed on November 7th, then visiting the winner of the 6-versus-7 matchup the following week. OPSU finished 7-3 as a Division II independent in 2014.
