Several Mountain West teams, such as Boise State, Fresno State, and San Diego State, are likely to be considered as expansion programs for the Pac-12.

Why is Air Force getting overlooked? It’s a question that is worth answering.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin fully evaluates the case for the Air Force Falcons to join the Pac-12.

There’s some real upside, but there are potential drawbacks as well.

Their ability to engage in the NIL and transfer portal space may limit their ceiling as a program compared to the talent acquisition potential of other schools.

However, they may have one of the higher floors for any potential G5 teams that the Pac-12 could add.
