The Western Athletic Conference's days appear to be numbered, but there could be a big reward for teams that hang until the end. Right now, there are only two football playing members for the 2013 season — Idaho and New Mexico State. As Jason Appleford points out, this could set up a banner season for Idaho.
"A few tough road games, but the Vandals should be competitive next year," he writes on his twitter page.
Last week, the WAC lost Utah State and San Jose State to the Mountain West, Louisiana Tech and Texas San Antonio to Conference USA and Texas State to the Sun Belt. Texas San Antonio and Texas State departed before playing even one game as members of the league.
To make matters worse, longtime WAC commissioner Karl Benson bailed in February and became commish of the Sun Belt.
