Conference Realignment: Big East To Invite Houston On Monday, According To A Report

The Big East has had the Houston Cougars on their radar for a few weeks, and week after week the Big East was set to invite teams to shore up the football side of the Big East. However, a report from Sports Radio 610 that the Big East is set to invite the Houston Cougars, SMU Mustangs, Central Florida Knights, Boise St. Broncos, Air Force Falcons and Navy Midshipmen.

Houston would join in all sports as would SMU and Central Florida, but Air Force, Navy and Boise State are to receive an invite for football-only. Last night the Mountain West and Conference USA agreed to an alliance for football that was created to help strengthen the two leagues. The alliance has been created to have a title game with the idea that the winner to receive an automatic bid to the BCS, but that has not been discussed with BCS executive director Bill Hancock.

If the report is accurate and the Big East does extend an invite to Houston on Monday, the Cougars would then be on their way to a BCS league.
