Three Schools Added To The WAC

((HT: ESPN/Katz))

And the winners are: Denver, Texas-San Antonio, and Texas State

Larry Coker and his undefeated Roadrunners football team now have a home. The three schools mentioned above are going to replace Boise State, Nevada, and Fresno State when they leave to go to the Western Athletic Conference.

UTSA needs approval from its Board of Regents. They, along with State, will join in all sports. Denver doesn't have a football program that high up in Division. That's the only exception by the Pioneers.

UTSA and Texas State are paying $250,000 exit fees, but Denver will not have to do that to the Sun Belt Conference.

San Antonio is playing as a Division I-AA independent in football in 2011. They'll join the WAC for football in 2012.

Katz also says that Montana is still in play to join the WAC by then. They're still trying to figure out if they want to jump from FCS to FBS.

More when we know more...
