Conference Realignment: Utah State Schedules Mountain West Announcement For Friday

It's all but official that the Utah State Aggies will join the Mountain West Conference starting in the 2013-2014 season. On Thursday, the school announced it will hold a press conference on Friday morning to discuss its future conference affiliation:

Utah State Athletics will hold a press conference on Friday, May 4 at 9:30 a.m. regarding conference affiliation. The press conference, which is open to the public, will be held in the Campbell Scientific Lecture Hall, Room 101, on the first floor of the Agricultural Sciences Building.

The Aggies are currently a member of the Western Athletic Conference, but the WAC has slowly been losing members over the last few years, including Boise State, Fresno State, Nevada and Hawaii. Boise State is back in for its non-football sports starting in 2013.

The San Jose St. Spartans will also announce its departure from the WAC for the Mountain West in a Friday press conference at 1 p.m. MT, reports CBS Sports' Brett McMurphy.
