Could The Mountain West Become A Power 5 Conference?

Aug 12, 2023

Mountain West commissioner Gloria Nevarez isn’t happy about the collapse of the Pac-12.

A former conference employee, Cal law school graduate, and Bay Area native, Nevarez told Front Office Sports she was “crushed” when she watched the news unfold from her home office last Friday.

For her current conference, though, the Pac-12’s demise provides a massive opportunity. Stanford, Cal, Oregon State, and Washington State are looking for new homes. The Mountain West could gain big football brands, solidifying its stability and boosting potential value for its next round of media rights negotiations.
