05:12 PM ET 04.16 | Boise State moved first in their fight with the Big East (soon to be named the American Athletic Conference) by pre-emptively suing the conference. The school asked that the Fourth Judicial District Court absolve the school of a buyout penalty. Boise State originally agreed to join the conference with the stipulation that a $5 million buyout would apply if they reneged on the deal, but that buyout dropped to $1 million if the Big East lost its BCS status.

Apparently it is for now.

I]The conference is one of the six automatic qualifying conferences of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), also known as a "Power Six Conference."[4] However, the conference will become a part of the "Group of Five" and share access to one of six premier bowls with 4 other conferences (Conference USA (C-USA), the Mid-American Conference (MAC), the Mountain West Conference, and the Sun Belt Conference) when a 4-team playoff begins in 2014.[5] Michael Aresco, who is currently serving as commissioner of the Big East, will serve as the conference's commissioner beginning July 1, 2013.[6][/I]
