Conference Realignment: WAC Also Losing Texas State, According To Report

When last we assessed the standing of the WAC (we did this YESTERDAY), the conference was down to something like three football-playing teams for 2013. That was before Brett McMurphy reported Texas State will head to the Sun Belt in 2013, leaving poor Idaho and New Mexico State as the last remnants of the once-proud 16-team conference that fielded a national champion in 1984.

Texas State would shore up the Sun Belt's Texas losses, as the SBC is set to lose North Texas to Conference USA, perhaps as early as this week, according to the Dallas Morning News' Brett Vito. The Bobcats have yet to even play a game in the WAC, playing their first season of FBS football later this year, and they're already leaving.

Elsewhere, San Jose State and Utah State have confirmed they are indeed in talks to leave the WAC for the Mountain West. The exit of those two schools may be remembered as the true finishing blow of the WAC.
