Report: UNR To Join Mountain West

unlv unr385 Report: UNR To Join Mountain West

UNLV and UNR could soon be conference rivals once again. Nevada-Reno and Fresno State have reportedly accepted invitations to join the Mountain West Conference in either 2011 or 2012. The two schools received invites on Wednesday, the same day it was reported that BYU plans to leave the Mountain West and become an independent in football. BYU would then reportedly join the Western Athletic Conference for all other sports. The MWC previously announced plans to add Boise State from the WAC next season. Fresno State has competed in the WAC since 1992 and UNR since 2000. If the change happens, this would be the first time UNLV and UNR share the same conference since they were members of the Big West Conference from 1992-95.
