Mountain West Conference Considering New Addition
Watch out, Boise State. Watch out, Nevada. Wyoming--good luck. The rumor mill has been proven true-- The Mountain West Conference is in talks with Gonzaga University.
No, the Zags won't be taking home any wins on the blue turf at Albertson's Stadium but Taco Bell Arena? Entirely possible.
It's no secret--despite being among the top ranked teams in the country year after year, Gonzaga's conference schedule is far from difficult. Typically going up against teams with losing records (despite BYU and Saint Mary's), it can be difficult for Gonzaga to get a feel for a tough game prior to March Madness each spring.
In a conference like the Mountain West, the Zags will have a far more difficult conference schedule through the winter and of course, their dominance will help all of the other conference teams grow.
Gonzaga joining the MWC could happen as soon as next season, however talks are still in the early stages. The Mountain West Conference publicly said that they have been talking to Gonzaga since August of 2017.
