Colorado State and New Mexico are talking about the possibility of bolting the Mountain West Conference and forming a new conference, reported today.

Both were among the schools that broke up the old 16-team Western Athletic Conference with their defections following the 1998 season. That led to the creation of the MWC in 1999. said the two "have shown preliminary but informal interest in forming a new conference that would have Boise State and/or Brigham Young as its foundation."

UH joined the MWC in 2012 after 32 years in the WAC. said the CSU and New Mexico talks "might be a reciprocal answer to the Big East's move" in which reports had that conference talking to Fresno State and Nevada-Las Vegas.
