Things are definitely going to change this after this year in the Western Athletic Conference. Boise State is already gone, and after the 2011-2012 college football season, The University of Hawaii Warrior football team will be on the move as well.
Hawaii will join Boise State, Fresno State, and Nevada in the Mountain West Conference, which will make for more competitive games, more television exposure, and more money.
However, before this happens Hawaii is actually favored to win the WAC in their last year as part of the conference. Sure Nevada and Fresno State will be players (they always are), but Hawaii has a pretty solid team coming back, one that is led by the WAC preseason player of the year Bryant Moniz.
Hawaii brings back a majority of the football team they had last year, which did indeed win the WAC. They will be gunning for two conference titles in a row, which would give them 4 overall. This would be a nice way to leave the WAC.
The schedule is set for an exciting final year, and many of Hawaii’s loyal fans will watching to see if they can leave the WAC on top by winning the conference title.
