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.

"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."
