  • 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 Richmond Spiders football team represented the University of Richmond in the 2012 NCAA Division I FCS football season. They were led by first-year head coach Danny Rocco and played their home games at E. Claiborne Robins Stadium. They were a member of the Colonial Athletic Association. They finished the season 8–3, 6–2 in CAA. Due to Old Dominion (7–1 in CAA play) being ineligible for the conference title, the Spiders claimed a four way share of the CAA title. Despite the conference title, the Spiders were not invited to the FCS playoffs.
