The rumor regarding Utah State to the Mountain West lasted about 12 hours and it forced WAC Commissioner Karl Benson to come out and deny these rumors by saying, "I don't know where it came from" and the rumors are "without merit."
All reports regarding a Mountain West Conference invite to Utah State are without substance.
This should put these rumors to bed and Karl Benson will be prepared to discuss this at WAC media days, and I can guarantee there will be at least one question about this rumor.
WAC Commissioner Karl Benson will address the false USU reports issue (if necessary) Thursday at the WAC Football Media Preview in Las Vegas
This should bury the latest rumor about Utah State joining the Mountain West, well until the next time they are brought up again in a few months.
