Syracuse and the Big East have reached a $7.5 million settlement agreement that will allow the Orange to depart in 2013, a year ahead of schedule.
Pittsburgh has gone to court with the intention of leaving in 2013, too.
Both schools are headed for the Atlantic Coast Conference.
If both schools leave early, Boise State will join a Big East football league that includes the following teams in 2013: Central Florida, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Houston, Louisville, Memphis, Rutgers, San Diego State, South Florida, SMU and Temple.
Boise State is putting a new twist on its popular game-day color schemes this year. Fans can create their own scheme and submit it to the school this week. The winning color scheme will be implemented for the Fresno State game, with the winner receiving two tickets to the Oct. 13 game. Color schemes for all games are expected to be announced next week.
