Reports: BYU Football to go Independent, Rest of Sports to WAC

This today from the Deseret News:

Brigham Young University is on the verge of bolting the conference it had a major hand in forming 10 years ago, according to numerous reports and sources, and rejoining the league it created decades earlier.

A USU source familiar with the situation told the Deseret News Wednesday afternoon that the move should be announced in the next day or two.

"It will be a done deal probably on Thursday after the Quorum of the Twelve (Apostles) meets on Thursday," the source said. "That's the only thing holding it back right now."
