Hawaii Football Will Join Mountain West Conference In 2012

In November, reports emerged that Hawaii's football program would move from the Western Athletic Conference to the Mountain West Conference, and on Friday, those reports have been confirmed. From CBS Sports:

The University of Hawaii is joining the Mountain West Conference for football and the Big West in other sports, abandoning the Western Athletic Conference after 32 years.

School President M.R.C. Greenwood said Friday that Hawaii will make the move in 2012, following Boise State, Nevada and Fresno State to the MWC.

As expected, Hawaii's other sports programs will remain in the Western Athletics Conference. Hawaii's football program was the oldest in the WAC.

In 2010, Hawaii finished 24th in the BCS rankings and put together a 10-3 record, including a 7-1 mark within the WAC. The Rainbow Warriors made school history in 2008, when they became the third non-BCS team to appear in a BCS bowl. On December 24th, they'll face Tulsa in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl.
