Boise State to Join MWC

On Friday it was announced that Boise State University will join the Mountain West Conference in 2011. The long-rumored move will help strengthen the conference's fight for an automatic BCS bid starting in 2012, after the end of a four-year evaluation period by the BCS to determine whether or not to extend automatic qualifying status to a seventh conference.

Boise State's achievements in football during its membership in the WAC will count towards the MWC when the BCS makes its evaluation.
