Boise State President Bob Kustra met with Big East officials in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, the school told the Idaho Statesman.
However, before you get too excited, Boise just wants you to know it wasn't a "date-date."
"It was informational in nature and Boise State continues to consider and evaluate its options," university spokesman Frank Zang said.
Boise is No. 1 on the short-list of football schools the Big East would like to replenish its coffers with. Of course, the Big East also looked a lot more appealing on Sunday, before news broke that West Virginia had one foot out the door.
Without West Virginia, the conference is now in serious danger of remaining a BCS conference, even if it adds Boise State and other schools. Without a BCS affiliation, there's little reason for Boise to make the move.
Like everyone else, the Broncos are likely sitting back and watching how things unfold with Missouri and West Virginia. Once those dominoes fall, they'll know what their next move should be.
