Conference Realignment: Houston Has Potential Invite To Join Big East, According To Reports

The Houston Cougars have been lobbying for a invite to any BCS conference and they may get their wish. Reports are coming from CBSSports.com's Brett McMurphy and the New York Post that Houston is one of six teams that could receive an invite to join the Big East possibly as early as next week. 

The other five teams that are under consideration are the SMU Mustangs, Central Florida Knights, Navy Midshipmen, Air Force Falcons, Temple Owls and Boise St. Broncos. Houston is in consideration with SMU and Temple for two of the three spots.

Also, the exit fee to leave the Big East was voted and approved to be increased from $5 million to $10 million to create solidarity between the current members. The raised exit fee is what Navy and other schools were waiting for the Big East to do before considering joining their league.

If these reports are correct then these invites are expected to be handed out early next
