Not to say that I am surprised, but WAC Commissioner Karl Benson had to come out and squash the rumor that Utah State was going to join the Mountain West. Benson said these rumors are "without merit" and that he doesn't know where they came from.
The official WAC twitter feed also weighed in:
All reports regarding a Mountain West Conference invite to Utah State are without substance.
WAC Commissioner Karl Benson will address the false USU reports issue (if necessary) Thursday at the WAC Football Media Preview in Las Vegas
