Report: BYU seriously considering Big East

BYU is seriously considering joining the Big East as a football-only member, Joe Schad of ESPN is reporting.

The Big East is considering an East/West division format as it tries to add new members. Boise State and Air Force are interested in hearing more about a West Division, according to the report. In fact, Boise State president Bob Kustra has previously said that the Broncos would join the Big East only if there is a West Division.

BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall acknowledged a few weeks ago that his school had held discussions with the Big East.
