Texas-San Antonio is poised to join Conference USA just one year after accepting an invitation to the WAC.

The University of Texas System Board of Regents has scheduled a vote on the move for Wednesday. The meeting agenda says that Conference USA officials approached UTSA in March and that the school will not have to pay an exit fee for leaving the WAC.

Conference USA is planning to merge with the Mountain West, creating a league with as many as 24 teams across five time zones.

UTSA was scheduled to officially join the WAC this year. But three WAC schools have declared their intentions to leave since UTSA accepted its invitation, which would leave the WAC with just four football schools.
