The University of Houston could be taking a step closer toward the Big East this week.

The UH Board of Regents has called a special meeting for 4 p.m. on Thursday in regard to the school's athletic conference affiliation.

On the meeting agenda is a request for approval to "delegate authority to the Chancellor to negotiate and execute a contract for athletic conference affiliation and to negotiate and provide notice of contract cancellation as necessary."

UH received an invitation from the Big East Conference last week, a person familiar with the Big East's expansion discussions told the Chronicle last week.

UH is currently a member of Conference USA and is a charter member of the league. The Big East is looking to expand to 12 football playing members in an effort to retain its automatic-qualifying Bowl Championship Series status.
