Conference Realignment: Mountain West, Conference USA Schedule Teleconference

CBSSports.com's Brett McMurphy is reporting that the commissioners from the Mountain West Conference and Conference USA will hold a joint teleconference Friday to make an announcement regarding the future of both conferences.

With both conferences apparently about to lose members to the Big East, the speculation is that the two will send their regular-season champions to a joint championship game that could bolster the winner's chances of inclusion in a BCS bowl.

A report earlier in the day indicates that MWC members Boise St. and Air Force and CUSA member Central Florida, along with Navy, will receive invitations from the Big East as soon as this weekend. All are expected to accept. The Mountain West, which is already losing TCU to the Big 12, will then have 8 members in 2012. Conference USA will have eleven members, though it has been strongly-speculated that SMU and Houston could receive invites from the Big East as well.

Settle in, college football fans. This one's just getting started.
