AAC says it won't expand 'westward' as Oregon State and Washington State look for a conference

Sep 1, 2023

Oregon State and Washington State seem destined for the Mountain West.

The American Athletic Conference announced Friday that it would not be pursuing expansion “westward” after SMU was invited to the ACC on Friday morning. The Mustangs are joining the ACC along with Cal and Stanford.

Cal, Oregon State, Stanford and Washington State were left as the four remaining Pac-12 schools following the departures of Oregon, USC, UCLA and Washington to the Big Ten, and Colorado, Arizona, Arizona State and Utah to the Big 12. With Cal and Stanford in a weeks-long flirtation with the ACC before the conference’s vote Friday, the AAC and Mountain West had both said they were examining the possibility of adding Oregon State and Washington State.
