Boise State Has Withdrawn from Mountain West

Boise State has officially withdrawn from the Mountain West Conference, according to UNLV president Neal Smatresk.  The letter arrived ahead of the midnight deadline that the school had to notify the conference it was leaving.

Had Boise State not done this, it would have had to pay an additional $5 million penalty, plus forfeit its share of bowl revenue.

Boise State to Stay in Mountain West?

The deadline for notifying the Mountain West that Boise State is leaving is midnight tonight and as of yet, they have not done so.

My hunch is that the Broncos will keep all their sports in the Mountain West unless the Big East can come up with a better offer than it has to this point.

Western Division of the Big East--please!
