Per a report in the Las Vegas Review Journal, Conference USA will vote in January to either join forces with the Mountain West Conference in all sports or, continue with a football only merger.
From the Las Vegas Review Journal:
Conference USA's presidents will meet Jan. 15 in Dallas to decide if that league will merge with the Mountain West Conference, a source involved in the negotiations said Monday.
The source, who didn't want to be named discussing a sensitive matter that has not been finalized, said the presidents will talk about either proceeding with the football-only merger previously agreed to or uniting in all sports.
He described momentum toward a merger as "full speed ahead to get this thing done." A merger could take place next year, but more likely it would be in 2013, after Boise State and San Diego State join three C-USA schools in entering the Big East Conference.
