When the WAC imploded last summer, the future of the University of Idaho football program was put into question. U of I opted to go the independent route for the 2013-14 campaign, and try to find a home in the interim.
The Vandals are homeless no longer.
On Wednesday, the University of Idaho announced it will join the Sun Belt Conference as a football-only member starting in 2014.
Idaho joins Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, and New Mexico State as the newest members of the league, which will field 12 football teams in 2014.
The U of I still intends on moving its other sports to the Big Sky Conference next season.
The Vandals previously competed in the Sun Belt from 2001-05 before joining the WAC.
