Texas-Arlington joins WAC
The Western Athletic Conference is back in business in the Dallas-Fort Worth area — only not in football.
Having lost TCU and SMU years ago, the WAC returned Thursday by adding one of the lesser-known institutions in the region, Texas-Arlington.
WAC officials approached UTA only two weeks ago, and everything clicked right away. The final step came Thursday with the board of regents for the University of Texas system voting to accept an invitation.
