Boise State Staying Put

UNDATED (AP) - Boise State has backed out on a commitment to join the Big East and will remain a member of the Mountain West in 2013. Boise State and the Mountain West announced Monday they had come to an agreement to keep the Broncos playing in the league they have been a part of the past two seasons.

The Broncos are still on the hook to pay a $5 million exit fee to the Big East, though the school says there are "provisions" which could make it less. The decision could cause San Diego State to back out of plans to join the Big East. The school had been saying it was committed to the Big East, but now it has no West Coast partner.
