WAC welcomes Texas-Arlington as 10th member

The Western Athletic Conference has a new member from the Dallas area.

The conference lost Texas Christian University of Ft. Worth and Southern Methodist University from Dallas a few years ago, but now has added UTA which is from the southern part of the city, Arlington.

WAC officials have been interested in UTA for awhile and both parties clicked from the beginning and the board of regents for the University of Texas system voted to accept the invitation to join.

After the upcoming 2011-2012 season, the WAC will be losing Fresno State, Hawaii and Nevada. But for the 2012-2013 season, the WAC will see its membership go back to ten with the additions of Seattle, Denver, Texas State, Texas-San Antonio and UTA.

Texas-Arlington will be jumping from the Southland Conference and has been looking to improve the school’s image by going to a bigger conference.

Only seven of the 10 WAC schools have football teams and UTA does not. The school is looking into possibly adding a football program. It could play its games in the new Cowboys Stadium which sits very close to its campus. The Mavericks shut down their football program in 1985.
