Boise State President Bob Kustra met with Big East officials in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, the school confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
"It was informational in nature and Boise State continues to consider and evaluate its options," university spokesman Frank Zang said.
The meeting had been reported by several outlets, including CBSSports.com.
The Big East, reeling from the defections of Syracuse, Pittsburgh and TCU, is considering a plan to add Boise State, Air Force and Navy in football-only and Central Florida, Houston and SMU in all sports.
Reports indicate that West Virginia will also leave the league for the Big 12.
Kustra said earlier this month that face-to-face discussions were imperative to moving forward with the Big East conversation.
“I’d think if there was going to be any future conference discussions, you need face-to-face meetings instead of all this stuff over the phone. You want to get a look at these folks and shake hands and have agreements. Those are the kinds of things that would slow down the process of doing this overnight,” Kustra said Oct. 15.
