Boise State wants San Diego State back in Mountain West too

Otto Kitsinger III

After a planned move to the Big East, the Broncos and Aztecs may both end up staying put.

Without taking a snap for the Big East Conference, Boise State rejoined the Mountain West on Monday. With the health of the conference in mind, the Broncos are lobbying for San Diego State to return as well. As part of their deal to return to the MWC, Boise State has assured that the conference can't offer their 12th spot to any team but the Aztecs before January 31.

With the ever-changing landscape of college football conferences, smaller schools with growing football programs are hot items. In December of 2011, both Boise State and San Diego State agreed to join the Big East in July of 2013. But the Broncos change of heart has the MWC in the pole position to lure back SDSU. The conference can only negotiate with San Diego State for the remainder of January, but can seek other teams when the month is over.

The teams have combined to win 61 games in the last three years and have made bowl games in each of those three seasons.
