DENVER (AP) - The Western Athletic Conference is adding Cal State-Bakersfield and Utah Valley next year as it ditches football.
WAC interim commissioner Jeff Hurd said the WAC will continue looking for other new members as it makes the transition from an FBS conference to a non-football playing Division I conference in 2013-14.
Cal State-Bakersfield is a Division I independent, and at least 13 of the school's 18 sports programs will become members of the WAC, most notably men's and women's basketball.
Utah Valley is a member of the Great West Conference. Fourteen of the Wolverines' 15 intercollegiate sports will compete in the WAC, including men's and women's basketball. In 2009, Utah Valley, with an enrollment of 33,000, became the first institution to leap to Division I directly from junior college status.
