BYU is on its way to making a new home in the West Coast Conference - so who are they exactly? The WCC is currently made up of 8 schools from California, Washington and Oregon, all of which are private and maintain religious affiliations, like BYU.

Currently the WCC competes in 6 sports for men; baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis and 7 sports for women; basketball, cross country, golf, rowing, soccer, tennis, volleyball. What many don't know is that schools that were previously in the WCC include Fresno State, UNLV and Nevada.
