If this is the case, this will be the first division 1-A shutdown of a football program since the Pacific Tigers closed down in 1995:

Hofstra and Northeastern were the last 2 D1 schools that dropped football.

Hawaii and Tulane could also drop their programs as well.

Hofstra and Northeastern were FCS level though, this is the first FBS level since Pacific. I have also heard the rumors about Hawaii, however Tulane just got a new 30,000 seat stadium and moved into a better conference, the AAC, so I don't see their program going anywhere in the near future.

It was an article a couple of years ago that several Louisiana schools are in trouble financially. Both New Orleans and Tulane have been struggling ever since hurricane Kathrina. Grambling State be merging as one school as La. Tech takes over. McNeese State, Nicholls State, LSU-Shreveport, Tulane, SE La. State and others could be merging. It is something that Georgia and Texas have been doing recently.

I think UAB may have already done so.

[> UAB's final 2014 helmet order -- Nameless, 12:13:43 12/03/14 Wed (128.248.217.142)

UAB is bowl eligible, so whichever bowl game they're in will be the last game for the Blazers.
In order to revitalize the site, this is the final helmet order for 2014. Both the gold "2012-" helmet and the white "2013-" helmet were not used, so call them retired.
8/30/14 v. Troy: "A": Gold shell, oversized dragon head, green facemask, http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=165065
9/6/14 @ Mississippi State: "B": White shell, oversized dragon head, green facemask, http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=165381
9/13/14 v. Alabama A&M: "A", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=165781
9/27/14 v. Florida International: "A", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=167180
10/4/14 @ Western Kentucky: "B", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=167601
10/11/14 v. North Texas: "B", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=167891
10/18/14 @ Middle Tennessee: "B", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=168234
10/25/14 @ Arkansas: "A", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=168508
11/1/14 @ Florida Atlantic: "B", http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/fau-owls/fl-fau-football-1104-20141103-story.html (FAU also has a new black helmet with their owl logo on the side, tapered stripe, white facemask)
11/8/14 v. Louisiana Tech: "A", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=169233
11/22/14 v. Marshall: "B", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=170157
11/29/14 @ Southern Mississippi: "B", http://www.uabsports.com/view.gal?id=170762

So in summary, the helmet order for UAB's final year is ABA-ABB-BAB-ABB, with their bowl game left.

Very little chance of them getting a bowl birth. 81 schools are bowl eligible. 3 of them are in their 1st year in FBS including Sun Belt Conference Georgia Southern. That leaves 38 bowls and the championship game. That means Fresno State and one other team will not get an invite if Fresno State loses to Boise State. It would be 4 schools left out Oklahoma State and Temple wins their games this weekend.

Or they invite Fresno anyway because they lost their conference championship game and they use that as an excuse.
And then Fresno gets embarrassed by a mid-level Rice team.
Way to go guys!
