Conference Realignment: Mountain West, Conference USA Schedule Teleconference

The Mountain West and Conference USA have announced they are scheduling a press conference tonight at 6:30 p.m. eastern. The assumption is that the Boise St. Broncos and Air Force Falcons have accepted an invite to the Big East as football-only members and most likely a combination between the Houston Cougars, SMU Mustangs and Central Florida Knights.

This press conference is expected announce a football-only merger with a championship game between the Mountain West champion and C-USA champion. The merger has always been an attempt to get a BCS bid, but I just don't see how that is possible.

If the two leagues are to fully combine and the two leagues lose four total teams that would put the Mountain West at eight teams and C-USA at 10.

Stay tuned to my twitter feed @JeremyMauss for updates as the teleconference is in progress and then a post afterwords for more information.
