Boise State May Jump to Big East Wednesday

by

Three sources, CBS Sports, the Boston Globe and the Newark Star-Ledger are all reporting that Boise State is expected to join the Big East athletic conference as early as tomorrow. If the Broncos join the Big East, only the football program would participate, leaving basketball and all other sports in search of a conference home. Boise State's current conference, the Mountain West, has indicated that the Broncos would not be able to keep its other programs in the conference without football participation.

CBSSports.com reports that Boise State, along with Central Florida, Houston, San Diego State and SMU are all expected to join the Big East.
