Big East Expansion: Boise State, Three Others To Be Invited Soon, According To Report

Stop me if you've heard this one before: the Big East is just about ready to expand, and is looking at a list of six to seven teams as potential conference realignment options. According to the New York Post's Lenn Robbins, that process might actually start coming to life following a Friday vote to raise Big East exit fees.

The first four schools to get invites in the reported scenario: the Boise St. Broncos, Central Florida Knights, Navy Midshipmen and Air Force Falcons. Robbins also has the Temple Owls, SMU Mustangs and Houston Cougars as the three teams left to scrap for two spots.

Two spots assuming the Louisville Cardinals and West Virginia Mountaineers stick around, of course.

Interesting that Temple, which has been telling football recruits for months now that it's assured of a Big East return, appears on the second list. Villanova has reportedly objected to bringing back another Philadelphia school. We'll see shortly whether the Big East is actually ready to start dealing.
