"There's been a lot of talk about the Big East losing its bid," said one highly placed college official with knowledge of the BCS requirements. "But as long as the conference maintains at least an 8 team membership for football the contract is iron clad for two years and there is also a two-year grace period which extends it through the 2015 season. If the Big East can field an 8 team league it's secure with its BCS bid until at least 2016."
If BSU jumped into the Big East, they would be in an AQ conference "until at least 2016".
