Big East Expansion: Boise State Decides To Stick With Conference Move, According To Report

The Boise St. Broncos have settled on staying in the Big East for football after some thought was given to going back to the Mountain West. According to CBS Sports' Brett McMurphy:

The Broncos had several recent discussions with MWC reps about staying in the Mountain West, sources told CBSSports.com. Boise State officials wanted to finalize the decision this week because they didn't want to attend the Big East's meetings, which start Sunday, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., if they weren't going to join the league.

The Broncos have one more year left in the Mountain West before becoming a football-only member of the Big East in 2013. At that point, the Broncos should have a conference affiliation for its Olympic sports, with the Big West looking like the best option right now.

Conference realignment is far from dead.
