Report: Fresno State To Accept Invitation To Join Mountain West

Well. We got ourselves the makin's of a real-live shootout in the American West, with an amount of offense you usually only catch on fall Saturdays on ESPN after 11 at night. Via the Fresno Bee comes the report that Fresno State will accept the Mountain West's invitation to leave the WAC:

Fresno State's decision is independent of whether BYU leaves the Mountain West Conference. The source said that BYU is considering playing football as an independent because the Mountain West would not commit to the school over the next five seasons, while also granting the school the right to leave at any time for better opportunities.

An official announcement is expected later this evening.
