The Division One-A season kicks off tonight with 15 games on tap, including Central Michigan at home against South Carolina State. Also, number-11 Wisconsin is at home against U-N-L-V.

Texas A&M will become the latest school to leave the Big 12, announcing its decision Wednesday to seek another conference. The Southeastern Conference has long been rumored as the landing place for Texas A&M. The school did not reveal the league it will next join, but did say it will submit an application with another conference and hopes to end its affiliation with the Big 12 effective June 30th, 2012.
Texas A&M will become the third school to defect from the league in just over a year. Last June, Nebraska announced its decision to leave for the Big Ten and Colorado decided to move to the Pac-10.
