BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- It was a move 14 months in the making, but the WKU Hilltoppers are officially members of Conference USA.

The transition from the Sun Belt Conference to C-USA was announced on April 1st of 2013 and culminated Tuesday.

Fans, players and coaches all gathered at 643 in downtown Bowling Green to celebrate the move.

WKU has spent more than 60 years in the Ohio Valley Conference and the Sun Belt, so this isn't a move that happens often.

Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky was on hand to take in the atmosphere with fans and he said it's a great move for the school and the conference.
