2010 Mountain West - Missouri Valley Challenge Dates Announced

New, 3 comments

Last year, the Mountain West Conference and Missouri Valley Conference kicked off the MWC/MVC Challenge series. Major conferences have been developing these kinds of series (most notable the annual Big 10/ACC challenge) for some time now. Although the Mountain West and Missouri Valley conferences have both gained a lot of respect in recent years, these kinds of series are necessary to boost the strength of schedule for both conferences. This series is contracted through the 2012-2013 season.
