Report: Boise State Among 17 Schools To Make Pitch To Join Big 12

Albertsons, stadium
Boise State University

Boise State is reportedly among 17 schools that will make a formal pitch to officials from the Big 12 to join the athletic conference.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports Big 12 administrators will host video conferences with representatives of the interested schools. Boise State is currently a member of the lower profile Mountain West Conference.

Despite its name, the Big 12  has just 10 members. Earlier this summer, school presidents directed their commissioner to explore a possible expansion. According to the report, other Western schools who’ll also make an appeal include BYU, Colorado State and New Mexico.
