UMass/Amherst Athletic Director John McCutcheon discusses decision to upgrade UMass football program.

The University of Massachusetts football program will be moving up from the Football Championship Subdivision (the FCS – formerly Division 1-AA) to the Football Bowl Subdivision (the FBS – formerly Div 1A). The Minutemen will begin play in the MAC against various directional state schools in 2012. This will also mean that the team will move its home games to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA, leaving the Amherst Campus.
