San Jose State, Utah State Jumping to MWC

 

All this conference shuffling isn't done just yet.

A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Sunday night to 8 News Now's Scott Bemis that Utah State and San Jose State will be joining the Mountain West Conference in 2013.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the switch could become official in the next seven to 10 days.

The move means the conference will have at least 10 schools competing in football in two years and nine in most other sports since Hawaii will be football-only. It's also a sign the Western Athletic Conference is in serious trouble.

Both current WAC schools, the Aggies and Spartans don't have much of a tradition in football, but Utah State has been a force in basketball, Going to the NCAA Tournament in eight of the last 13 seasons.
