Mountain West Conference approaches Pac-12 about West Coast alliance

The SportsXchange

The Mountain West Conference has approached the Pac-12 about a West Coast college football partnership, MWC Commissioner Craig Thompson said on Wednesday.

According to Thompson, the alliance would involve nonconference scheduling, as well as the sharing of officials, and bowl matchups. The Mountain West and Pac-12 already share New Mexico and Las Vegas Bowl tie-ins, but an alliance would allow for both leagues to save on travel costs, according to CBS' Jeremy Fowler.

Thompson said there is no deal in place yet but the Pac-12 is open to the idea. The 24 combined teamed in the two conferenced make up most of the West Coast landscape of college football.
