Conference Realignment 2012: Boise State To Remain In Mountain West For 2012-2013 Season

Boise State has announced that the school will remain in the Mountain West Conference for the 2012/2013 season before moving to the Big East Conference for the following season. There had been rumors that Boise State might even move to the Big East for the 2012/2013 season, but it doesn't appear that will happen.

This move will precede a major shift within those two conferences, as the Big East will be adding numerous members while the Mountain West will be merging with Conference USA. It's likely to be one of the most significant shifts in conference membership that we've seen in college sports recently.

The announcement applies to all of the Boise State Broncos sports teams. In addition to Boise State, other teams joining the Big East soon are San Diego State, Central Florida, SMU, Houston, Memphis and Navy, which will join as a football-only member in 2015.
