Conference USA & Mountain West To Merge

Posted: Updated:

The University of Tulsa is close to finding itself in a new conference.  Conference USA and the Mountain West are working on a merger.  According to reports could happen as soon as Tuesday.

It will have a new name and could be the first of it's kind.

Right now it appears to be a 16 team league with eight schools from Conference USA and eight from the Mountain West.

But Tulsa Athletics Director Ross Parmley told us this new mega conference could have 18, maybe even 24 teams before all is said and done.

Ross said TU is excited about the future and stability was a key in making this move.
