Big East Expansion Finished With BYU, Looks Toward San Diego State, According To Report

It appears that the BYU Cougars are no longer a candidate to join the Big East, reports Brett McMurphy of CBSSports.com. Late on Monday night, reports surfaced that BYU was on tenuous ground with the Big East over the negotiations as a result of the school's demand to retain all television rights for its home games. It appears that has led the Big East to look elsewhere for a new member.

On Monday evening, too, reports of the San Diego St. Aztecs being the next target for the Big East also came up. McMurphy also reports that the Aztecs are to be the next team the league will negotiate with. Bringing in San Diego State would help satisfy the Boise St. Broncos' need for a western team to be brought in with them.

Another of McMurphy's sources reports that Air Force will wait until after the regular season is over to decide on its future in the Mountain West or to join the Big East.
