Conference Realignment: Big East Set To Invite Air Force And Others, According To A Report

There have plenty of reports that have said the Air Force Falcons will receive an invite to the Big East, but according to the associated press the invite is set to be a reality:

Along with Boise State, which would be invited only to play football in the Big East, the league also wants to invite Air Force and Navy as football-only members and Conference USA members Central Florida, SMU and Houston to join in all sports.

The official, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the league wasn't announcing its plans publicly, said he is confident the league's members are ready to move forward with the plan.

The invite that Air Force is to receive may be rejected as there was a report that came out late last night that Air Force along side the Boise St. Broncos are hesitant to join the Big East. If Air Force does go to the Big East for football-only they would most likely send their other sports to the Missouri Valley Conference.

Also, last night Air Force took part in a vote, and voted yes, on the alliance between Conference USA and the Mountain West for football only. Looks like if Air Force does go to the Big East, they will never be a part of that merger they agreed upon.
