Air Force Staying In Mountain West, Not Joining Big East

The Air Force Falcons were rumored to be one of the next additions to be Big East Conference, but Lt. Gen. Mike Gould told Bryan D. Fischer of The Gazette that Air Force will officially remain in the Mountain West Conference for the time being.

The Big East announced that the Houston Cougars, Boise St. Broncos, San Diego St. Aztecs, Central Florida Knights and SMU Mustangs were all joining the conference on Wednesday. They will begin playing football in the conference in 2013.

The conference does still plan to expand and rumors are that fellow military academy Navy could be the next football member to join. If that's the case, perhaps Air Force might want to rethink things. For the time being, however, they're standing pat.

Keep up with the latest news and notes on the conference expansion whirlwind, with SB Nation's comprehensive conference realignment coverage. For more on Air Force, visit SB Nation Denver and MWC Connection.
