With all the NCAA football conference restructuring and changes in the postseason bowl system on the horizon, the Big East also intends to make some changes to its annual conference championship game.
Brian Murphy at the Idaho Statesman reports that Big East coaches and athletic directors have voted in favor of hosting the conference championship game at an on-campus site. The proposed move would take effect beginning in 2013. The criteria for determining the host team has not yet been set.
The Boise St. Broncos should be part of the Big East by the time 2013 rolls around, which would give the conference a contingent of 12 teams, allowing for the creation of new divisions. Those divisions will be hashed out over the next year, with the intent being to maximize fan enjoyment and television appeal, as well as to foster and maintain school rivalries.
Mengus22 at Big East Coast Bias reports that the proposals for the divisions are being looked over on Tuesday and that the divisions may not break down according to the geographic location of the teams.
