Yes, and Baylor has them on the schedule in football in the next few years.

I said a while back that one route the WAC could go would be to bring in the 5 best Lonestar programs.

UIW's stadium is named for New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson.

Sam Houston St and Lamar have expressed interest in the Belt and been turned down. Any school that has been rejected by the Belt is pursuing other avenues to FBS, including Jax St and EKU. S F Austin doesn't have the enrollment or local media of those two, but likely don't want to be left behind. Mo St needs to be FBS to move up, but they can't afford to leave the MVC to do it. Wichita St needs FBS to become a full member of the AAC, as that league won't take a start up fb program.

But what does this mean for the future Montana-Dakotas FBS power conference?

Nothing has changed to alter it. Montana just got a business executive as president, so just waiting for an IPFW offer elsewhere to get things in motion. IPFW is actively looking and badly wants out.

UMKC might have a football spot in the reborn FBS WAC too. That could have been the strategic thought on why they went and rebuffed the Summit.

UTPB might be a school to look out for to going to D1. Odessa s the hotbed for high school football recruits. They do play in a 20,000 seat stadium as well.

I do like the area to someday have a Div 1 team, but I think it might still be under populated for Div 1 football. They do have great high school games there that draw very well, but I'm not sure a university of only 5,500 students should really push for D1. Get that enrollment closer to 10,000 first and I think they'd be great in the Southland then.

Tarleton St just started a $26 million renovation of its football stadium last month. Seem to be real serious about moving up to the Southland. The money courtesy of the Texas legislature.
