Boise State Non-Football Sports Will Return To WAC

While the Boise St. Broncos football team will now compete in the Big East Conference, most of their remaining sports will continue to participate in the WAC, according to the school.

Most of Boise State’s other athletic teams, including men’s and women’s basketball, will compete in the Western Athletic Conference, also effective July 1, 2013.

Boise State was a full member of the WAC between 2001 and 2011 before leaving to join the Mountain West this past year. They'll remain there for one more season.

Western Athletic Conference membership for 2013 is expected to include Idaho, Louisiana Tech, New Mexico State, San Jose State and Utah State, plus newcomers Denver, Seattle, Texas State, UT-Arlington and UT-San Antonio.
