We have a source that has told us San Diego State will hold a press conference either this week or next to announce that San Diego State will return to the Mountain West Conference. We expect the Aztecs will return before the Mountain West Conference vote on January 31st. Our source was correct and the Aztecs wake up this morning one step closer to being back in the MWC.

Below is our prior story on San Diego State and conference realignment.
The exit fee for San Diego State should they wish to stay in the Mountain West conference is $0. According to the official contract signed by both Boise State and San Diego State with the Big East States, ” Should any team back out of the contract they will have to pay a $10 million dollar exit fee unless all of the teams should decide to leave.”
We are expecting a press conference this after noon by San Diego State to address what the move will be for SDSU. If San Diego State is going to stay in the Mountain West Conference we expect a press conference today. January 1st 2013 the San Diego State Aztecs will officially be a member of the Big East Conference and Big West Conference. The new TV deal with the Mountain West Conference is with CBS. We will have more coverage on our facebook page.
Brett McMurphy has given us more gems by adding an updated segment on San Diego State.
A Mountain West conference source with knowledge of the situation said San Diego State wants back in the Mountain West, but the league is holding up the process as it decides whether there is a better fit than the Aztecs and if there is a school that can deliver more value. The source said if SDSU returns to the Mountain West, the Aztecs would have to come back on the conference’s terms. (ESPN)
We have heard reports from San Diego radio hosts that San Diego State wishes to stay in the Mountain West Conference if they can get out of the Big East Conference without having to pay the $5 million dollar fine.
The Mountain West Conference has invited the Houston Cougars, SMU Mustangs and UTEP Miners and to join the conference. The Mountain West is looking to add teams that will bring more value to the conference before San Diego State is re-admitted.
The division breakdown is for FOOTBALL ONLY
