Boise State to Remain as Football Only Member in Big East Conference

                BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State University announced today that it is remaining as a football only member of the Big East Conference and is in ongoing, substantive discussions with the Big West Conference to be the home for the majority of its Olympic sports.

Consistent with these discussions, the Big West announced today that it will hold a meeting of its Presidents prior to the start of the coming academic year for a final decision on Boise State's membership in the Big West beginning July 1, 2013.

"There is no doubt that conference affiliation is a difficult and complex issue, but I am very pleased where we stand today and excited for the future prospects of all of our Bronco sports," commented Boise State President Dr. Bob Kustra.

Boise State has issued its withdrawal notice to the Mountain West Conference effective June 30, 2013.
