The school said greater television exposure plus a decrease in travel were two big reasons for the move out of the Mountain West Conference. The newspaper reports the last time San Diego State had a regular-season home game on ESPN was 2005.

"With the ability to now play home games and have ESPN be at the forefront, that will get people to come in and will get kids to watch," men's basketball coach Steve Fisher said, according to the newspaper. "That's how you recruit."

Problem is, you rarely see Big West games on ESPN. I don't know if SDSU's move to the Big West is going to change things to any great degree.
