Conference USA Expansion: UT-San Antonio Joining, 3 Others Reportedly Likely

The University of Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners are preparing to join Conference USA. The university's board of regents officially granted permission allowing the school to seek admittance into other athletic conferences, and accept an invitation from C-USA when it comes. The board of regents is expected to hold a press conference later this week, and has already released a statement:

"The Chancellor concurs in the recommendation of the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs ad interim, the Vice Chancellor and General Counsel, and President Romo that authorization be granted to The University of Texas at San Antonio to accept an invitation from Conference USA (CUSA) to become a member, and to negotiate and finalize terms for athletic conference membership. Approval of U. T. San Antonio's entrance in CUSA also includes approval of admittance to the potential new conference."

Three more teams are expected to join the conference, as well. C-USA is looking to add North Texas, Florida International and Louisiana Tech, pending administrative holdups. Those moves would again give the conference 12 schools, taking a C-USA-Mountain West merger off the table.
