Conference Expansion: Big East To Invite San Diego State, Boise State As Football-Only Members On Wednesday, According To Report

Looks like the report last night saying that it was just a matter of time before the Big East was going to add Houston, SMU, Central Florida for all sports and Boise State and San Diego State as football-only members is moving forward with an announcement expected to be made on Wednesday. This is all according to CBS Sports college football writer Brett McMurphy:

I have said all along that I will not believe it until I see it, but McMurphy is rarely wrong on his reports. Anyways it was really just a matter of time before this move was going to happen. The move will give Boise State and San Diego State more money from the Big East's new television deal.

There is no word on Air Force as of yet and if they are to join the Big East they would be following suit after the 2013 and possibly with the Navy.

With San Diego State and Boise State on their way out the Mountain West will be down to eight teams for football and seven for basketball, so the league must decide to fully combine with Conference USA or add new members to shore up the league numbers.
