WAC commissioner Karl Benson said Texas State and UT-San Antonio will make presentations to the league's membership committee at its Sept. 28 meeting in Dallas. The membership committee is comprised of the athletic directors from the six remaining members of the WAC (Idaho, Hawaii, Louisiana Tech San Jose State, New Mexico State and Utah State).
Benson said he has met with representatives from both schools in the last 30-to-45 days.
Benson said he expects no decisions at the meeting.
Other potential expansion targets are expected to participate as well.
"There are other schools that have confirmed their participation," Benson said. "Until they acknowledge their participation, I will defer until they make public that they're meeting with us."
Benson said he expects the WAC to have at least eight members for the 2012 football season.
The league is losing Boise State to the Mountain West Conference after the 2010-11 academic year. Fresno State and Nevada are leaving the league for the MWC in 2011 or 2012.
