A person familiar with the decision says the Western Athletic Conference is expected to announce on Thursday the addition of the University of Texas-San Antonio and Texas State University, along with the University of Denver as a non-football member.
The person tells The Associated Press that the three schools will become members of the WAC in 2012.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because final approval of the additions are still being worked out.
Boise State is moving for the Mountain West Conference after this school year, and Fresno State and Nevada join the MWC in 2012.
The additions of Texas-San Antonio and Texas State will give the WAC eight football members in 2012.
