CUSA losing 6 teams to AAC expansion. Would the MAC add a few CUSA teams?



Hard to see CUSA NOT falling apart now.

FIU, LA Tech, Marshall, Middle Tenn, ODU, Southern Miss, and West KY are left out.

Would the MAC have any interest in Western KY, ODU. Middle Tenn, or bringing Marshall back ?

(FIU, S Miss, LA Tech seem far fetched)

Would it be worth more TV $ for MACtion?

"The six potential institutions looking to join the American from Conference USA include FAU, Charlotte, North Texas, UTSA, Rice and UAB. It's expected that all six programs will be approved as new AAC members. Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel, who first reported the movement.

Adding North Texas, UTSA and Rice would allow the AAC to retain a strong geographical foothold in Texas, while FAU would join South Florida in the conference, Charlotte and UAB would have regional partners in East Carolina and Memphis, respectively."
