The WAC could be in turmoil of late due to some reports that Utah State and San Jose State will likely bolt the league for the Mountain West after the 2012 season. That, coupled with the fact that UT San Antonio is now interested in joining Conference USA with Louisiana Tech, would leave the WAC with only three football playing members in 2013.
STATEMENT FROM WAC INTERIM COMMISSIONER JEFF HURD ON CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT
“The Western Athletic Conference Board of Directors is well aware of the changing landscape in Division I athletics and has been in discussion about it for the last several weeks.
Further, it continues to evaluate the impact upon the WAC and is closely engaged in evaluating its membership options. It will not speculate relative to those options, but it has confidence that the WAC will maintain its more than 50-year history as a preeminent Division I conference.”
