Blue roundup: Philadelphia Inquirer says BYU or Air Force could join Big East
In the latest college football realignment news, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that BYU or Air Force could join the Big East and become the league's 14th member.
"Teams will play eight-game league schedules once the conference expands from eight teams to 12 in 2013," according to the Inquirer. "The conference is expected to grow to 14 teams in 2015. That's when Navy joins for football only. Brigham Young or Air Force is expected to join Navy, according to multiple sources at the spring meetings."
Meanwhile, BYU's future in the landscape of college football could be closely tied to Notre Dame's simply because the two programs are both independent in football.
Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said Wednesday he is confident that whatever playoff model is adopted in 2014 that the Irish will be included as long as the school finishes in the Top 4, according to Brett McMurphy of CBSSports.com.
Finally, former BYU running back Fui Vakapuna has signed with the New York Jets.
