NMSU football headed to the Sun Belt Conference?
NMSU football could be leaving the WAC for greener pastures in the Sun Belt, possibly by Thursday, according to multiple online outlets. A request for a response from NMSU has not been received as of 9:10pm Monday night.
According to online reports, the Sun Belt is planning on adding Georgia Southern and Appalachian State by mid week, then later this week, the conference will announce New Mexico State and Idaho will join the conference in football only. Both programs will play football as independents in 2013, and will participate in the WAC in all other sports.
