Big East Expansion: Boise State Will Move Olympic Sports To Big West

Boise St. has accepted an invitation from the Big West that will see all of the Broncos' non-football teams join the conference. This will allow Boise to make their previously announced move to the Big East for football, where they will join SMU.

There was concern that Boise St. may have to back out of their move to the Big East because they had not found a home for their non-football sports. After they announced their football conference change, the Mountain West announced that the Broncos would not be able to keep their remaining sports in the conference, but now that the Broncos have sorted out their non-football sports, they can join the Big East in 2013.

Part of the excitement at SMU when it was announced that they would join the Big East in 2013 was that they would get to play the Broncos regularly. Boise St. has established themselves as one of the better programs in the country and they bring a lot to the Big East, which the conference needs considering their historical weakness in football. Now they have that, and SMU has that, as the Big East continues to reshape itself in this post-realignment world.
