2012 Mountain West Media Days: Craig Thompson Says Mountain West Will Stay At 10 Teams

Conference expansion has altered the landscape of college football— the Mountain West Conference included— but at the conference's media day on Wednesday, commissioner Craig Thompson told the press that he expects the Mountain West to remain a 10-team conference for at least the near future.

Thompson also said that he has "strong commitment[s]" from the 10 institutions that will compete in football in 2013. Those 10 teams are: Air Force Falcons, Colorado State Rams, Fresno State Bulldogs, Hawaii Warriors, Nevada Wolfpack, New Mexico Lobos, San Jose State Spartans, UNLV Rebels, Utah State Aggies and Wyoming Cowboys.

The Mountain West's flagship school— the Boise State Broncos— will follow in the footsteps of the TCU Horned Frogs by defecting to a major conference in 2013.

SB Nation Denver will have continued coverage of media day at the Mountain West. Visit Mountain West Connection for more on the conference.
