COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Mountain West Conference and San Diego State today jointly announced, effective immediately, San Diego State will remain a member of the Mountain West in all sports.

"San Diego State University is pleased to be continuing as a full member of the Mountain West Conference," said SDSU President Dr. Elliot Hirshman.  "We are excited about the opportunities our partnership provides for the development of the Conference and San Diego State University's athletic programs." 

"As a charter member of the Mountain West, San Diego State has decades of history and tremendous competitive rivalries with our member institutions," said Commissioner Craig Thompson.  "With today's announcement, SDSU's membership continues uninterrupted and helps the Mountain West maintain a solid foundation going forward.  The Aztecs remain a perfect fit geographically and provide the Conference with a highly-competitive athletics program that includes a Top 25 men's basketball team, a 2012 MW tri-champion in football and several other league championship programs."

With the addition of San Jose State University and Utah State University on July 1, 2013, the Mountain West will currently be comprised of 11 all-sport members and 12 football-playing institutions. The Mountain West membership also includes: the United States Air Force Academy, Boise State University, Colorado State University, Fresno State, University of Hawai‘i (football only), University of Nevada, University of New Mexico, San Diego State University, UNLV and University of Wyoming.
