The Conference USA board of directors is set to meet later this week to discuss the possibility of forming a merger with the Mountain West, a source told ESPN's Andy Katz.
The two leagues have lost a collective six members to the Big East in recent months. They had already announced a joint partnership to form a football alliance, in which schools in the leagues would play games against each other. But given the heavy losses the leagues have taken, merger discussions are now on the table.
