Appalachian State and Georgia Southern, both of whom are stepping up to FBS classification in football, will join the Sun Belt Conference in all sports beginning in 2015, ESPN's Brett McMurphy reported.

The two programs are moving out of FCS (formerly Division I-AA) status and will be ineligible for the FCS championship in 2013.

They will also be ineligible for a Sun Belt title or FBS postseason play as they transition to the FBS level next year.

Adding Georgia Southern and Appalachian State would give the Sun Belt 10 football members and 12 basketball members.
