I think most of those are Division I schools. Their football programs may compete as FCS (Div 1-AA) if they have one.

UAB’s Jordan “Jelly” Walker and Rice’s Mekhi Mason earned Conference USA Men’s Basketball weekly honors.

Walker was named the MVP of the Sunshine Slam after averaging 23 points, five assists and 4.5 rebounds per game in a pair of wins over South Florida and Georgia, the Blazers’ first win over an SEC opponent since 2010. He shot 42 percent from the field, 38 percent from three and 88 percent from the free-throw line in the event.

Mason enjoyed the best game of his early career with a game-high 25 points to help the Owls erase a 17-point deficit in a 76-67 triumph over cross-town foe Houston Christian. His 25 points are the most by a Rice freshman since former C-USA Freshman of the Year Marcus Evans posted 27 points in a loss to Charlotte at the C-USA Basketball Championship.
