DALLAS -- Members of Conference USA and the Mountain West have announced that the 16 schools are working to form a new conference that would begin competing in the 2013-14 season.

UNLV President Neal Smatresk and Tulane President Scott Cowen released a joint statement Monday.

The statement says the new conference will likely include 18-24 schools, be split into divisions and not only have a football championship game, but also semifinal games.

School leaders plan to have more meetings over the next six months to complete work on the new conference.
