Moving on Up: UMass football is joining FBS. The Minutemen will join the MAC as football-only members in 2013.

UMass will hope the increased visibility and alumni activity will offset the increased cost of the program. The downside is, to meet attendance requirements, they’ll be playing in cavernous Gillette Stadium, 93 miles from campus. [AP]
