A-State Football Finishes Atop Sun Belt for Third Straight Year

With the 2013 regular season completed for all eight Sun Belt Conference football members, Arkansas State has claimed a third consecutive conference championship with a 5-2 league record that placed it atop the standings with Louisiana-Lafayette.
JONESBORO, AR - With the 2013 regular season completed for all eight Sun Belt Conference football members, Arkansas State has claimed a third consecutive conference championship with a 5-2 league record that placed it atop the standings with Louisiana-Lafayette.

A-State closed out its regular season Nov. 30, and two days later the Red Wolves accepted an official invitation to play in the GoDaddy Bowl on Jan. 5 in Mobile, Ala., at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Louisiana-Lafayette entered its final regular-season contest today with a half-game lead in the Sun Belt standings, but will share the championship with A-State after suffering a 30-8 setback to South Alabama.

Arkansas State is now the third team in Sun Belt history to claim at least a share of three consecutive conference championships, joining Troy (2006-10) and North Texas (2001-04). The Red Wolves have also won three league championships in a row for just the second time in school history, also claiming Southland Conference titles from 1968-70.

A-State has posted a 20-3 Sun Belt Conference record for an .869 winning percentage over the last three seasons, which included outright league championships in both 2011 and 2012.

A-State is expected to learn this weekend who its Mid-American Conference opponent will be for the GoDaddy Bowl.
