Georgia State's official conference record was 0-0, and it did not occupy a spot in the overall standings. Old Dominion was ineligible for the conference championship because of its announced departure for Conference USA in 2013; under CAA bylaws, a departing school is ineligible for conference championships.
The 2012 season was be the first and only season that Georgia State participated as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association. Beginning 2013, the Panthers will compete as an FBS transitional team as a part of the Sun Belt Conference.
During the August 30 season opener against South Carolina State University, sophomore punter Matt Hubbard made the equivalent of an FCS and FBS single game punting distance average record of 62.2 yards. However, due to GSU's reclassifying status, it is neither considered FBS nor FCS, and therefore the record does not count in either of those categories.
