After being courted by AAC, Colorado State set to remain in Mountain West for now, reports say

CSU and Air Force are both founding members of the Mountain West, but their futures in the conference looked murky earlier this week.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Colorado State to the American Athletic Conference?

Not so fast.

After being courted, along with Air Force, by the AAC, the Rams appear set to stay in the Mountain West right now.

Many national outlets reported earlier this week that CSU and Air Force moving to the AAC was close to a done deal.

The AAC and Mountain West are in a tug-of-war to be the top Group of Five program, and the AAC has been weakened by Houston, Cincinnati and UCF leaving for the Big 12. The departure of those schools was triggered by Oklahoma and Texas leaving the Big 12 for the SEC.

Pillar MW programs Boise State and San Diego State both told the MW earlier this week that they are staying. Now CSU and Air Force appear to have changed course as well, with Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports the first to report the duo will stay. The report has been confirmed by a number of national outlets as well.
