C-USA, MWC are unlikely for merger
After months of discussions and legal wrangling, it appears unlikely that Conference USA and the Mountain West Conference will merge, sources have told CBSSports.com.
“There is not much talk about a formal merger of the conferences into one conference entity in the near term, but that is still a future consideration,” a source said.
The two will likely still form some kind of alliance in order to share resources. This will aid in the negotiation of television contracts and non-conference scheduling.
