Idaho Football Coach: "Montana Makes Sense for WAC"
In a recent article in the Spokesman-Review, Idaho head coach Robb Akey suggested that Montana makes sense geographically for the Western Athletic Conference (WAC).
The league’s commissioner, Karl Benson, has stated through the media on several occasions that Football Championship (FCS) schools would be considered to fill the spot of Boise State and any other institutions that were to leave the conference.
Idaho was a member of the Big Sky Conference from 1963 through 1996, serving as one of the charter members of the league along with current members Idaho State, Montana, Montana State and Weber State.
Of that group, Montana and Montana State have repeatedly been mentioned as WAC possibilities, along with Cal Poly, UC-Davis, Portland State and Sacramento State. Cal Poly and UC-Davis play football in the Great West while Portland State and Sacramento State are Big Sky rivals of the Montana duo.
