Reports: USD expected to join Missouri Valley Football Conference, stay in Summit League for other sportsThe University of South Dakota has called a news conference for noon today regarding its conference affiliation.
The Coyotes were granted acceptance to the Big Sky Conference earlier this week but did not make it official.
In what looks to be another dramatic shift in conference membership, speculation Wednesday night centered around the Coyotes joining the Missouri Valley Football Conference. KSFY-TV and the Sioux Falls Argus Leader both reported on their websites late Wednesday night that USD today is expected to accept an invite to the MVFC.
The Coyotes are set to join the Summit League in 2011-12, but the Summit does not have football. And with the breakup of the Great West Football Conference, USD is left looking for a conference for that program.
