Provo • Brigham Young University is on the verge of joining the Big East Conference as a football-only member — perhaps within the next day or two — The Salt Lake Tribune has learned.

A source familiar with the negotiations confirmed Tuesday morning that the conference and school could announce before the end of the week that BYU will be part of a proposed western division that also includes Boise State, Southern Methodist, Houston and, possibly, Air Force.
Makes no sense to me, but go for it.
i am butthurt....
From the same newspaper, last week:

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/sports/5286...l.html.csp
Quote:The Salt Lake Tribune has learned that USU and San Jose State — which face each other Saturday in Logan — will likely be extended Mountain West invitations if Boise State and Air Force bolt for the Big East Conference.

USU officials have confirmed that the Aggies are in discussions with the MWC about a possible move.

So where are Boise and AFA moving their "other" sports?

The WAC may need them to survive.

There might not be a WAC after the MWC and CUSA backfill their losses.
Really weird that BYU and Air Force, two far west institutions both turned down the Big 12, up said yes to the Big East. Given their different reasons (competitiveness for Air Force, TV issues for BYU), it made sense, but still weird.

I think the Big12 is done. Even more so after reading those emails from Boren.

Compound that with the fact that the SEC will move to 16 teams spells it out.
