An invitation for Cal State Northridge to join the Big West Conference could come next week. Big West Conference officials are expected to discuss and possibly vote on admitting Northridge and UC Riverside during a conference call scheduled for Wednesday. Robert Maxson, president of Long Beach State and chairman of the board for the Big West, said he is in favor of admitting both schools.

An intriguing domino effect that some Cal State Northridge officials privately say could eventually result in the Matadors becoming a full member of the Big West Conference began Wednesday with Nevada being accepted into the Western Athletic Conference. Nevada will leave the Big West for the WAC on July 1, 2000. The Big West will be left with 11 full members--including six that play Division I-A football. Northridge is an associate member playing only softball in the Big West.

Nevada was accepted into the Western Athletic Conference on Wednesday, landing another blow to the Big West Conference's image. WAC officials voted to add Nevada to create a nine-team conference. The conference had 16 teams last season, but eight left to form the Mountain West Conference. Nevada, which will join the WAC for the 2000-01 season, has been lobbying the conference for the past year.

Cal State Northridge will join the Big West Conference for baseball in 2001, conference officials announced Thursday, possibly the first step in Northridge becoming a full member of the conference. Northridge will remain in the Big Sky Conference in most other sports, including football and basketball. Northridge's softball team has played in the Big West for three seasons. The Big Sky doesn't play baseball or softball. The Big West is being reshaped after the defections of four schools.

UC Santa Barbara 60, Pacific 53 -- Alex Harris scored a game-high 17 points, and the Gauchos cruised to victory at Stockton.

Hapless Bowl '90 is over, and we have a loser. It wasn't even close--Cal State Fullerton under New Mexico State, 9-43, snapping the Aggies' amazing streak of consecutive losses at 27 and leaving the Titans all alone atop the Division I-A football rankings, assuming you're looking at them standing on your head. They're No. 106. Out of deference to Gene Murphy, we'll cut the one-liners there. Murphy is a good coach who deserves much, much better.

Seeking to bolster its sagging football fortunes, Big West Conference athletic directors Thursday endorsed the addition of four independent schools as associate members. The schools--Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech, Northern Illinois and Southwestern Louisiana--will compete in football only, beginning in 1993 if the move is approved. Big West athletic directors voted, 6-0, in favor of the move, which will be acted on formally at the conference's annual meetings May 11-15 at Las Vegas.

Nevada Las Vegas is the No. 1 team in the nation according to the Associated Press preseason poll, but Big West Conference coaches Wednesday voted the Rebels second in the conference, behind Cal State Long Beach. Five coaches picked Long Beach--13-15 last season and currently unranked--first, and four picked UNLV in what one coach joked was "a conspiracy." "They might be No. 1 in the nation, but they're not No. 1 in the Big West," said Jerry Pimm, UC Santa Barbara Coach.
