Who do you see as your 3 biggest rivals in the 2022 WAC?
There is a thread in the realignment board about asking who you see as your teams three biggest rivals? This started me thinking about rivalries in the expanded WAC and the possibility of different rivalries. So I thought I’d add the question here- Who do you see as your three biggest rivals in the new WAC?

For Abilene Christian, here’s how I see it:

Tarleton
SFA
Sam Houston (Football) and GCU in other sports

Whatcha got?

Setting the debatable label of "rival" aside, if we are strictly talking about conference opponents we most want to see our school smash in every single sport every single time they compete, my top three for GCU would be:

1. NMSU
2. CBU
3. All Other Purple Schools (Tarleton, ACU, SFA)

You sure it's not

1. NMSU
2. NMSU
3. Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez


I can see Lamar being a UTRGV rival soon enough.

For Tarleton probably ACU, SFA and SHSU. I don't really know who our 3rd would be

ACU has a history of playing the other Texas schools. Out of curiosity I checked our recent schedules in sports other than football and basketball to see if we have played other WAC schools....

Baseball.
2021- NMSU (2)
2020-Utah Valley (4). We had 2 games scheduled against NMSU but those were COVID cancelled.

Men’s Tennis-2019, 2018 New Mexico State Invitational
Women’s Basketball- 2018, 2019 New Mexico State
Women’s Soccer- 2019, 2018 New Mexico State
Beach Volleyball- 2020 Grand Canyon

We just finished a two softball games against UTEP in El Paso. I’m a little surprised we played the Miners rather than our soon to be conference mates in Las Cruces. Update...never mind, I see your SB team is off in Florida,

Not enough contact to consider any of these schools rivals but at least some regular match ups with NMSU in a couple of Olympic sports.
