Big East Expansion To Happen On Wednesday, Include Boise State, According To Report

It appears that Big East expansion will finally come on Wednesday. The conference is expected to announce the additions of the Boise St. Broncos, the Houston Cougars, the Central Florida Knights, the San Diego St. Aztecs and the SMU Mustangs, according to Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports.

We've heard this all before, but this time is seems like it will really happen. However, this initial announcement will include just five teams. With BYU out of the picture a couple of weeks ago, it now appears that the Air Force Falcons and the Navy Midshipmen are still in the picture. However, the Falcons are still determining its future course of action and Navy might not want to give up its Independent status in football.

Boise State is expected to join as a football-only member in 2013.

The Newark Star-Ledger and the Boston Globe also reported this story (h/t to Brian Murphy of the Idaho Statesman).
