Conference USA bans championships in Mississippi due to state flag

Conference USA is taking a stand of its own following the lead of the SEC and the NCAA.

Today, the league banned all league championship events from the state of Mississippi in a move approved by the board of directors.

This is a huge blow to Southern Miss, the league’s only school from Mississippi, who was set to host the C-USA Baseball Championships in 2022.

Not to mention, Biloxi, Hattiesburg, and Pearl have combined to host the tournament eight out of the last nine years.

USM is also one of the only football programs consistently in the hunt to play in the annual title game.
