MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Idaho is joining the Sun Belt Conference as a football-only member.
The Idaho State Board of Education voted unanimously Wednesday to allow Idaho to accept an invitation to join that league for the 2014 season.
Idaho had been a member of the Western Athletic Conference, which has lost most of its football-playing members.
The Vandals will play next season as an independent, but had been searching for a conference to join.
Idaho was a football-only member of the Sun Belt from 2001-2005, then joined the WAC.
Idaho's other sports are moving to the Big Sky Conference.
