There’s been some more news about a potential expansion in the American Athletic Conference.

The AAC recently announced UCF, Cincinnati and Houston will be joining the Big 12 conference, and now there’s evidence suggesting the AAC is targeting a couple of Mountain West teams to replace them.

Brett McMurphy reported that Colorado State and Air Force are looking to leave the Mountain West for the American Athletic Conference sometime in the next week, and CBS Sports reporter Matt Norlander confirmed there is mutual interest:

While it may seem like a good move for both of the Colorado schools, there are some doubts about whether or not it’s worth it, as Boise State and San Diego State were in the same boat, but backed down.

A reason why teams are looking to leave the Mountain West could be because of a lack of faith in current commissioner Craig Thompson according to a Mountain West source.

It’ll be interesting to see what the Rams and Falcons ultimately decide to do.
