BYU 'Close' to Joining Big East

On this week's edition of As The Conference Turns...

BYU, a major domino that has yet to fall in realignment, is reportedly close to joining the Big East. Other schools that had already been accepted were waiting for Boise State to get a partner on the western flank before they announced their decision, and BYU appears to be the team that will fill the void.

This would, seemingly, be a big step towards the Big East keeping its automatic BCS bid.

Report: Big East Extends Six Invites

In this week's As the Conference Turns...

The Big East has reportedly finalized its invitations to the best of the rest, meeting yesterday to vote on sending them out to Houston, Boise State, SMU, Navy, Air Force, and Central Florida.

With how little of the actual Big East is still intact at this point, it is still unknown if this will be enough to keep their oft-criticized automatic BCS bid. On the bright side, the Big East now almost stretches to the Far East.
