With the possibility of Texas A&M jumping to the SEC, Air Force emerged as a rumored replacement for the Big 12, if the Aggies do end up leaving.
There isn’t a whole lot Air Force can or will say at the moment, considering it doesn’t have much idea what the future holds for the conference landscape in college athletics. Air Force declined an interview request for athletic director Hans Mueh but it did have a statement on the matter:
“The Air Force Academy is a proud and happy member of the Mountain West Conference and looking forward to a great future,” Mueh said in the statement. “The Academy will continue to work towards what is best for our cadet-athletes in every area on and off the field as we continue working to produce officers of character for our Air Force and the nation. “
