Old Dominion is leaving the CAA to join Conference USA starting July 1, 2013.

ODU will now be in Division One and they will have the opportunity to compete for the BCS Championship.

The school says that they have secured more than $3 million dollars in private support for the move and they will continue to raise funds through the summer.

They say the money helps them avoid raising students’ fees.
