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.
Update: BYU will now apparently not join the Big East, with television rights being the major sticking point.
