Boise State Not Heading East

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Big East Conference continues to lose teams, this time it loses one that never even played a game in the conference.

Boise State announced Monday, that it will not join the Big East in 2013 and instead will stay in the Mountain West Conference. Boise State becomes the 14 team in the last two years to leave the Big East.

"As I've stated many times, I have had the utmost trust that the university would make the right decision in what is best for Bronco football and all our sports at Boise State," Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen said in the statement. "This innovative proposal to get football the maximum exposure on national television will be a tremendous boost to our program as we continue to grow the Bronco brand.

The Broncos will have to pay a $5 million exit fee to the Big East, which sources of ESPN say will be partly taken care of by the Mountain West.

Big East Conference Looking to Add 14th Football Member

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(EAST HARTFORD, CONN) -- The Big East Conference wants to add a 14th football team, newly appointed Big East commissioner Mike Aresco annonuced on Thursday night.

Aresco also confirmed that the conference is planning to have a championship game after next season.

West Virginia left the Big East for the Big 12 conference beginning this season.  Pittsburgh and Syracuse are leaving for the ACC beginning next season.

The completely revamped Big East conference will include Boise State and San Diego State for football, as well as Central Florida, SMU, Memphis, and Houston for all sports.

Temple also joined this year in all sports, immediately replacing West Virginia.

Navy will also join for football only in 2015, bringing the total number of teams to 13.

Aresco's ultimate goal as commissioner is to make sure the Big East is recognized as one of the top six football conferences in the nation.

"You have a pretty huge divide now between our conference and anything below us, and almost no gap between us and what they are calling the Big Five," Aresco said. "We say it's the Big Six. I'm not going to yield on that at all."

Boise State Rolls Past Arizona State, 56-24, Wins MAACO Bowl

JupiterImages/ VEGAS) -- The Boise State Broncos (12-1) lead 28-3 at halftime and went on to win 56-24 Thursday night over Arizona State (6-7) to win the MAACO Bowl.

Broncos' running back Doug Martin ran for 151 yards on the ground and returned the opening kickoff in the rout.

It will be the end of the road for Kellen Moore as he leaves Boise State as the NCAA's winningest passer.

"Very fortunate to be put in the situation I was," said Moore, who will be looking for an NFL team to pick him up in next year's NFL draft.  "When you are surrounded by great people, great things happen."

Dennis Erickson coached his last game for Arizona State (6-7), which let him go in November after the Sun Devils finished the regular season on a four-game losing streak.

Broncos' Petersen Says Everyone Is Tired of the BCS

JupiterImages/ YORK) -- Boise State head coach Chris Petersen voiced his frustration on Monday after his Broncos finished in seventh in the BCS standings but were left out of a BCS game.

In an interview on KBOI-TV, Petersen said "everybody is just tired" of the system, which many want to see revised with a playoff-type system like they have in the NFL.

Petersen's team was left out of a BCS game for the fourth time in eight years, despite the team's record. The No. 7 Broncos (11-1) beat by No. 11 Virginia Tech (11-2) and No. 13 Michigan (10-2).

"Everybody's frustrated, nobody really knows what to do anymore," said Petersen.  "It doesn't make sense to anybody.  I don't think anyone is happy anywhere."

Boise State will take on Arizona State (6-6) in the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas.
