Jul 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Featured News, Mountain West Expansion & Realignment

Update:  Took about 12 hours, but according to the WAC, Utah St. will not be moving to the MWC: “@WACSports All reports regarding a Mountain West Conference invite to Utah State are without substance.” We’ve heard this one before only to have nothing happen.

A few reports today are claiming that there is some truth to the week long Mountain West expansion rumors with Utah State and San Jose St. set to join the Mountain West as the 11th and 12th schools. Utah State had made sense to many as an attempt by the MWC to recoup the Utah […]
